Leveraging Your MultiGenerational Workforce – August 2019

Event Date/Time

  • Wednesday, August 7, 2019
    8:00 am - 11:30 am


800 NE Oregon St
United States

Boomers, Gen X, Gen Y, and now Gen Z. Four distinct generations each with their own unique approach to work all cohabitating each and every day.

Join us in this interactive workshop as we explore each of the generations in the workplace and how to effectively approach each as a manager and co-worker. Throughout the session, we’ll take a deep dive into each generation looking at the influences of each generation as they came to age and how those influences impact the values and characteristics of each in the workplace today. Along the way, we will explore stereotypes and how those stereotypes impact our approach to working with and managing people from each generation.

During this workshop, participants will have an opportunity to:

  • List the generations in the workforce
  • Describe the influences, characteristics, and values of each generation
  • Discuss the reasons for stereotypes of each generation
  • Explain ways to effectively manage and work with each generation
