Understanding Generation X, Y, and Z with Fire Chief Glen Mitchell
July 19 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm HSTFree
Today, there are at least three distinctive generations in every workplace. Baby Boomers are team players, love social interaction at work, and invest time to work their way up. Gen X-ers are skeptical, determined to do a good job, but also go home and have a life. Millennials (Gen Y-ers) have little patience, and if they’re not happy or content… they leave.
While generational diversity in the workforce promotes a broader range of talent, it can often mean conflicting ideas and stereotyping – the Baby Boomers think Generation X needs a stronger work ethic, Generation X sees the Boomers as self-absorbed workaholics – and everyone thinks Generation Y is selfish and self-entitled.
By 2025 (6 years), 75% of workforce will be Gen Y. Do we have the understanding and leadership tools to minimize the difference at work and at home?
NOTE: This is a free event for the public.
