Never in the history of the United States have there been four generations in the workplace at the same time. It is imperative that we understand how to create a work environment that enables all four generations to be successful while still getting the work done! This interactive presentation is an introduction to the four generations currently co-existing in the workforce Traditionalists, Baby Boomers, Gen X, and Gen Y. We will examine the characteristics, influences and stereotypes of each generation and what makes each generation tick. We will look at current workforce data on the generational diversity in the workforce. In addition, this workshop will provide examples of ways to best communicate with the different generations and provide you with ideas on how to best interact.
