Thriving in a Multigenerational Workplace

With approximately 10,000 baby boomers retiring every day, it’s more important than ever to attract the best employees you can hire while dealing with an ever-shrinking talent pool. Even more critical, is keeping your new hires from leaving after spending substantial time, money and human resources to get them onboard.

Why is this important?

  • Millennials will make up about 75% of the workforce by 2025
  • Gen Z is following close behind – and they are “wired” differently again
  • Millennials and Gen Z are poised to change the economy at an even greater extent than the Baby Boomers did
  • Millions of manufacturing jobs are going to go unfilled unless we change the conversation with younger workers
  • Companies must be willing to look at every aspect of their business and make changes if they want to attract the right talent
  • If you don’t figure out how to connect with today’s talent, your competitors will

With five generations in the workplace at the same time, it’s important to realize that people are wired differently simply based on the year they were born. When you understand how each generation thinks, their relationship to the workplace, and where they place their priorities, it makes life easier for everyone.

During the enlightening, engaging and entertaining session, you will

  • Look at the characteristics of each generation and why they “act like that”
  • Explore the significant differences – and similarities - between generations
  • Uncover onboarding practices that work and set up a plan to implement them
  • Discuss best practices for finding, attracting and retaining new talent
  • Implement strategies to build employee engagement across multigenerational teams
  • Walk out with strategies you can implement immediately


By creating a culture of understanding between all five generations in the workplace, you’ll have a better chance of keeping your top talent from becoming someone else’s.
