Generational differences in the workplace go far beyond the occasional pop culture references. Employees from different generations have different expectations of the workplace. This presentation will cover how generation differences impact the manager/employee relationship as well as team dynamics. The presentation will also cover what employers can do to recruit, retain, and mentor millennials to become their next leaders. Other tough questions will discussed, such as how to balance tried and true strategies while not stifling new ideas.
