For the first time in history, we have four distinct generations working side-by-side in the workplace. Each generation is a group of people defined by age boundaries - those who were born during a certain era. They share similar experiences growing up and their values and attitudes, particularly about work-related topics, tend to be similar, based on their shared experiences during their formative years. These differences can affect everything, including recruiting, building teams, dealing with change, motivating, managing, and maintaining and increasing productivity. When each generation has different motivators, how do you design effective compensation and benefits programs?
Join us for this informative, interactive, and fun-filled workshop to learn:
Each workshop participant will be given a workbook to use during the workshop and to keep for future reference.
This seminar will be co-presented by Anissa Elsey and Kristin Burks of Nazdar.
