Decoding the Generations (August 13, 2020, 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM CDT)

Companies work hard to understand their client base. They focus on what products their clients will want to buy or services they want to pay for. But how often do we think about the differences in the people who comprise our workforce? Do we consider who our potential co-workers will be when interviewing for a new position? Do we think about what motivates the people who will ultimately produce the goods or services we provide?

Today the workforce includes people from four different generations. Sometimes the differences are points of contention creating roadblocks to success, other times the differences make for great teamwork. Understanding what makes the different generations “tick” will help in everything from landing a job in a multi generationally diverse company to creating a culture where employees thrive to produce the best possible products or provide superior services.

This course will highlight the differences between the generations. It will cover what is important to each generation with respect to success in the workplace. It will illustrate how companies and managers can use this knowledge to create a workplace culture of cohesiveness. This course is beneficial for both people managers and also those just trying to get a leg up in the workplace.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the different generations in the workplace
  • Understand events that occurred throughout the generations
  • Understand how beliefs and values develop for a generation
  • Make the correlation between beliefs and values to behaviors
  • Use this information for positive impacts in the workplace
