Description
There is a lot of negative stigma around the generational gaps that exist in the workforce and the repercussions that they bring with them. One such repercussion is that there is a lack of entry level positions and a surplus of mid level management positions with no talent to fill them. The reality is, as employers we have taken a short-term look at new hires and have failed to take into consideration the long-term development of our employees. With hiring managers having to deal with entitled and complacent applicants, and executives complaining about new-hire turnover costs, the common denominator seems to be Gen Y.

So what about Gen Y? The general consensus is that they are: entitled, impatient, apathetic, they love and expect instant gratification, and have low attention spans. These factors result in low loyalties to employers, fast turnover, and lack of interpersonal relationships at work all of which are a drain on our companies’ energy and resources. Additionally, the boomers that are in charge of hiring and managing these people have little or no idea how to combat these issues.

In this sessions we will cover some more of the negative (and positive) stigmas surrounding Gen Y and how they affect the workforce. We will learn how to embrace the generational differences rather than struggle with them. I am not going to tell you how to rework your organization to accommodate the Gen Y workforce. Rather, I will share some small and easy adjustments that can be made to embrace this demographic that are guaranteed to go a long way.

Anyone that has to do with the hiring and training process of entry level employees.
What You Will Learn

I enjoyed the presentation very much and it was worthwhile. The generation gap is a problem today and of course how one deals with it depends on the culture. 5 / 5
