With five generations working side by side, employers face some serious employee retention, attraction and development challenges. And, let’s not forget the legal challenges of preventing bias!
In this fun, interactive and educational presentation, you’ll learn:
  • How to motivate, develop and retain multiple generations while still meeting business objectives

  • Breaking the Millennial Myths – i.e. job hopping, instant promotions…

  • How Generation X is your secret weapon

  • It’s not just about money and power, but flextime and wellness

  • How innovation, collaboration and social impact can skyrocket business success

  • Generation management bias – when comfortability meets profitability

  • Legal ramifications of technology in the workplace. Let’s get Digital.
Join two seasoned presenters from the Legal and HR worlds for some practical advice that you can apply right away!
