Understanding Generational Differences

This workshop is designed to help leaders and managers to understand what generational diversity is, the different values of Baby Boomers, Generation X and Generation Y, and how these differences can impact behaviours and expectations in the workplace.

We are experiencing a shift in our workplaces in line with global demographic shifts. Organisations are facing a growing number of baby boomers exiting their organisations taking with them critical experience and knowledge. At the same time organisations have to learn to adapt to the increasing numbers of technologically sophisticated “Generation Y” entering the workplace. By 2020, Generation Y will be the largest generation in the workforce.

This session will help you to answer:

  • Are you ready for the growing number of Generation Y entering the workforce?
  • What more can do to attract this mobile group of talent?
  • How can you create a culture to engage and retain each generation in your workplace?

You will also have the opportunity to:

  • Challenge your own current views
  • Explore how generational values may play out in the workplace
  • Plan for a generationally diverse workplace
