    2. Discover how the millennials will change the landscape of the next generation of business
    3. Identify ways to best utilize generational cultures to create a top workplace culture and retain employees


Session Description:


Is there a generational difference in the workplace, or have all the boomers gotten boring like their parents and started complaining about ‘those young kids’? Are the Millennials the ones you really have to be concerned about or are they your key to the next successful generation? Is there really a difference at all or did we just start putting on blinders?

This eye-opening session will get you to start thinking. Along the way, uncover ways to help each generation appreciate each other in the workplace. Understand strategic ways to utilize the assets of each generation for organizational success. Discover strategies to meet the needs of each generation as you seek to retain your workforce and build a top workplace culture.
