Effectively Managing Within a Multi-Generational Public Sector Workplace


Traditionalists, Baby Boomers, Generation Jones, Gen Xers and Millenials, oh my! Put them all in one workplace and what do you do? Explore engagement tools for each group, and discover unique factors of each generation to help build successful teams.


We are currently in a very unique position in time where we could very well have as many as four generations actively working in the same workplace at the same time. How do you, as a public sector leader, effectively manage all fairly? Explore engagement tools for each group. This workshop will assist you in identifying the unique factors of each generation to help build successful teams.
