For the first time in history, there are five generations in the workplace. Forty-three percent of organizations surveyed recognized changing demographics represented a significant impact on their organizations. With an aging workforce and shrinking labor pool, it’s important to understand each group’s needs and how you might tailor your employee engagement, learning and training programs to achieve improved outcomes.
In this workshop, we will review each of these groups’ characteristics, motivational factors and workstyles to gain a better understanding of how they impact employee engagement levels. We will then examine how this differentiation creates the need to integrate multigenerational strategies in recruitment, orientation, talent management, retention and succession planning.
- Examine the five generations in the workplace and explore preferred communication methods.
- Discuss the importance of employee engagement across generations.
- Determine response to organizational change among generations.
- Consider how you can use this information to optimize development and training in your organization.
