Traditionalist vs. Millennials: Building a Healthy Organizational Culture in a Multi-Generational Environment
Sponsored by: Canon Solutions America
Speakers: Rick Pierce, Co-Founder & Senior Consultant, Rising Sun Consultants and Dwayne Magee, Director College Press & Postal Services, Messiah College
One common challenge many organizations are currently facing is the issue surrounding Generational Differences – particularly in terms of the role of technology in the workplace. For the first time in history, we are dealing with four unique generations in the workplace at the same time – Traditionalists (born before 1945 – mostly all retired), Baby Boomers (born between 1945 and 1962 – retired or approaching retirement), Generation X (born between 1962 and 1982), and Generation Y/Millennials (born between 1982 and the mid-1990s. These generations all show distinct preferences in what they want and need in terms of technology on the job. To better engage younger employees in their jobs so that they want to stay and help build your organization, you need to understand those preferences and may need to adjust your approach to doing business. What has changed in our times is the disparity in their outlook and values. Each generation has experienced a dramatically different world that has influenced their hopes, ambitions, and expectations in life.
During the webinar you will be presented with valuable insights such as:
- Identifying/defining four distinct generations functioning in today’s workplace
- Discussing the unique values, beliefs, gifts and challenges each generation brings to the workplace
- Discussing the importance of effective communication/interaction between the generations
- Discussing strategies for effective cross generational relationships
