Generations of Change in the Workplace
Bring your mom or daughter this month! (Regular guest charges apply.)
The workforce as we know it is changing. Diversity - not just in terms of gender and ethnicity, but also in the sense of generational norms, attitudes and work styles - is changing the way we recruit, retain, and manage employees. Employee engagement is the key. Today’s workplace requires “employee engagement” of diverse ages, viewpoints and expectations then striving to engage them according to their unique generation preferences and not just our own personal preferences and preconceptions. Faces of Change shows how important it is to learn more about and engage those employees from the different generations whose upbringing has influenced their interpersonal communication styles, work habits, and motivation.
