“Adapt to Thrive: Leading a multi-generational workforce to grow your business”
For businesses to grow, they need to attract, engage, and keep great people. What great people want out of their work experience is evolving, and is greatly influenced by a major generational shift happening in the US. Businesses that can adapt to the changing expectations of what a great work experience looks like, and who can harness the power of various generations working side-by-side, will thrive. In this discussion, we will explore the different expectations, needs, and “why” of each generation. We will uncover the superpower of each generation. Most importantly, we will share how businesses can flex how they work and lead to grow, without losing the core of what has already made them successful.
