Professional Development & Training and the Gerontology Academic Program and Sanford Center for Aging present "Solving the Puzzle of Generational Differences," a free workshop, from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., Friday, May 4, in the William J. Raggio Building, Room 2030.
For the first time in modern history there are four generations working side-by-side and the differences among them are one of the greatest challenges facing organizations today.
"Solving the Puzzle of Generational Differences" is a powerful, interactive, workshop that will engage and challenge each participant to look through new lenses and develop the tools to deal with generational differences.
The workshop takes a tour of what creates a generation and focuses on what influences a generation's behavior in the workplace. A special focus is placed on the newest generation — "Millennials." Participants will develop practical strategies to help recruit, motivate, communicate, retain, and challenge the generations of today.
