At the conference, Holly Moore will carry out a workshop on The Impact of Technology on Workplace Dynamics and Generational Diversity.
The impact of technology on the workplace cannot be underestimated. When multiple generations are working together in an organization, the issue becomes even more complex. The most successful companies embrace the changes technology brings and find ways to build strong teams and collaborative work environments within this new reality.
In the morning session of this workshop entitled “Generation Diversity in the Workplace”, attendees will identify the key characteristics of each generation in the workplace and identify strategies to help each team member function at their highest level. Time is allotted for Q&A and group discussion.
In the afternoon session entitled ” Generation iY in the Workplace: Turning Performance into Potential”, attendees will focus on learning strategies to:
• Recruit young talent
• Create engaging environments that allow the emerging generation to flourish
• Establish mentoring programs that involved the younger and older generations learning together
• Develop ongoing professional development programs to retain millennial talent for the long term
The workshop will close with attendees working in groups on a Case Study exercise designed to help them create action steps to incorporate immediately in their work situation.
