Weathering the Perfect Storm: A multi-generational approach to accelerating Operational Excellence

Kim Huggins

Captains of industry keep a watchful eye on economic forecasts. But what happens when market volatility collides with a shortage of skilled labor and a pending wave of retirements? It’s the perfect storm, brewing.  Some interesting facts:

•    Many workers delayed retirement during the recession and many employees who are between the ages of 45 and 64 will retire within the next two decades.
•    An increasing percent of occupations are held by Millennials (25-34 year olds), and the numbers are growing.
•    Add in Gen X (34 – 50 year olds) and Gen Z who will join the workforce shortly, and you have four distinct employee groups, each bringing a unique set of core values, characteristics, learning styles and experience levels.
This creates leadership challenges never before seen.

This session prepares leadership to take the helm of a multi-generational workforce.  Topics include:      
1.    Descriptions of generational groups, and what is important to them in the workplace
2.    How generational issues impact business and effect the bottom line
3.    3 simple strategies to create a work environment that’s attractive to all generations
