October Business Development University

Gen Up: Bridging the Generation Gap

Five generations currently share the workforce, each viewing work ethic, leadership, relationships and success differently, which influences interactions with colleagues, customers and clients. The key to working with different generations lies in our ability to understand generational motivations and values, as they affect how we see the workplace, our engagement with our employer and our careers. This Business Development University will provide skills you can use to navigate a multigenerational workplace, improving interactions with clients, consumers and suppliers.

Attend this workshop to:

  • Minimize the effects of the generation gap in the workplace.
  • Increase productivity by recognizing and utilizing the strengths of different generations.
  • Learn strategies to recruit, retain and motivate employees of all ages.
