This seminar, facilitated by Patricia Hatley, author of 4 Generations @ Work: Leading from Conflict to Collaboration, will address five generations currently in the workplace. From veterans, baby boomers, Generation X, Generation Y, to plurals, Hatley will explore each group's preferences, values, digital impact, and workplace implications. She will share what works to inspire members of each respective group to become engaged. Hatley will delve into the subject of giving business owners a voice and the "power of ASK" as it pertains to employee engagement, motivation, and commitment. Understanding the needs of each generation is crucial for the success of businesses of all sizes.
