Overcoming Generational Conflict

Thursday, February 22, 2018

Networking:  8:30 am; Program:  9 am

Junior Achievement of Northeastern Pennsylvania
1122 Oak Street
Pittston PA 18640

Traditionalists, Baby Boomers, Gen Xers, Millennials, and Post Millennials are the five generational groups active in the workforce today. Each has vastly different work styles and priorities. The synergy created by such diversity can drive organizations to new levels of success, but the conflict that can arise among members of the groups can hamper business development and profitability.

The younger groups – Millennials and Post-Millennials - often have strengths in technology, creativity and flexibility, so they offer important skills to prospective employers. But polls and other evidence suggest that there are significant levels of inter-generational conflict preventing a seamless integration of younger workers. As a result, human resource professionals, managers, and business leaders need tactics to overcome this conflict. This workshop will compare the characteristics of the various groups and offer tactics to employers seeking to engage younger workers. 

Takeaways:

  • Defining generational groups
  • Reviewing strengths/opportunities of diverse generations working together
  • Proven methods in communication between generations

Presenter:

Frank Sorokach, M.B.A., Lecturer in Business Administration at Penn State Worthington Scranton
