How many generations are there now? We have multiple generations in the workplace, with Generation Z soon entering the workforce. How do we connect all of these generations to make a productive and effective work environment? In this session, you will learn about the newest generation, Generation Z, who you will be interviewing and working with you in the next couple of years, if not already. How are they similar and how are they different from the generations that come before them? Working with your peers, you will work through current challenges created by having multiple generations and flip those challenges to opportunities. These opportunities will merge the older generation's experience and knowledge with the energetic and innovative mindset of the younger generation.
• Gain an understanding of what motivates each generation and how to take that understanding to create a more inclusive and efficient work environment.
