Today, organizational leaders are experiencing a unique challenge — how to effectively manage teams comprised of employees from four different generations. These generations, often referred to as Veterans, Baby Boomers, Generation X and Millenials, have very different values, attitudes and work styles.

Failing to understand and adapt to these generational needs can lead to decreased engagement and productivity, and even turnover in your organization.

Join us for a 90-minute webinar featuring Jen Shirkani, president and CEO of Penumbra Group, Inc. that will help you better understand the different generations in the workplace and give you practical strategies to maximize intergenerational effectiveness. Plus, you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions during the live Q&A portion of the webinar.

You’ll Learn:

  • The four different generations and the characteristics that define them
  • How each generation’s characteristics affect workplace attitudes and behaviors
  • How to successfully engage each generation to build a productive team
  • How to build trust and respect among generations

Who Should Attend:

  • Human resources professionals
  • Managers and supervisors
  • Management consultants
  • Recruitment professionals
