Navigating a Multi-Generational Workplace (Breakfast Session) – Burnaby
November 22, 2019 @ 7:30 am - 10:00 am
We are at the generational crossroads of workplace composition in Canada. For the first time in modern history there are 4 generations in the average Canadian workplace, and it is estimated that by 2020, at least 50% of the workforce in Canada will be Millennials.
This workshop will explore some of the challenges and opportunities businesses face as the generational balance tips as the Boomers continue to retire and the Millennials and Gen Z take their place. What will this mean for your managers and supervisors? What will be the impact on your organizational culture, trends, social norms and recruitment and retention strategies?
In this two-hour breakfast session, we will:
- Gain insight into the generations represented in today’s workplace
- Look at the generational difference & similarities in the workplace (myths and facts?)
- Explore how to manage a multi-generational workforce
- Discuss options on how to reward and motivate all generations
- Discuss how to remove generational barriers and stereotypes
- Examine how the baby boomer’s retirement will create leadership opportunities for Millennials
- Talk about work life balance and is it really just the Millennials who care?
- AND, explore the concept of managing individuals, not generations
Who Should Attend This Session?
Anyone who works with, or leads cross generational teams, as well as Senior Management and HR Professionals who lead recruitment, retention and engagement activities.
