Millennials in the Workplace: Understanding Generational Differences

The number of Millennials in the workplace is increasing each year. There are over 83 million Millennials in the United States and 53 million are in the workforce. For the first time in history we have four (or five) generations in the workplace. The different values, priorities and life experiences of each generation has created potential areas for generational friction. This presentation will examine the significant life events that influenced the values and attitudes of each generation. With a focus on Millennials, participants will gain an understanding of ways to resolve differences related to topics such as communication, dress codes and work style preferences. Join us to gain a greater understanding of generational viewpoints.
