Managing and Motivating the Next Generation
The newest entrants to the workforce over the last 10 years, the Millennials (aka Generation Y) have made a profound impact on the way organizations strategize about employee engagement. Challenging our thinking around traditional concepts of loyalty, work ethic, communication, technology, and work-life balance, clearly the tools for engaging this next generation reside in a toolkit far different than the previous two generations.
How is your organization adapting to the high expectations of this generation? Are you resisting or flexing? Do you understand the implications for workforce planning? How are 'old' cultural and procedural mindsets affecting your ability to motivate and retain this critical mass of employees?
Join us for a robust discussion surrounding the issues that will continue to impact your organization as Baby Boomers retire, Gen-Xers assume leadership roles and Millennials make an indelible mark on the workplace of the future: all 80 million of them.
Why should you attend:
As the oldest of the 80 million Baby Boomers begin to retire, who is leading the charge behind them? Generation X at only 46 million, is not populous enough to backfill vacant leadership positions. So employers are turning to the next generation of Millennials (born after 1980) to rise to the occasion. The challenge is that this generation thinks and behaves very different from their older counterparts, leaving vast gaps in perceptions around work ethic, loyalty, communication
style, use of technology and many other cultural "norms" of the past.
