    Next Generation Leaders: How to Attract, Engage & Retain a 5-Generation Workforce

    Interactive Virtual Presentation

    Presented by: Scott Lesnick


    Successfully Blending the Five Generations in today’s workplace can be a tall order for any leader. Smart companies an assist all employees, especially leaders, to better understand one another and in so doing, increase productivity. It begins with open and vibrant dialogue and inclusion of all generations as we navigate our new normal.

    Around the globe and in Illinois, today’s employees can have up to five generations working side by side. And, productivity can decrease if your staff doesn’t understand the unique characteristics and talents each person/generation brings. After all, understanding and growing our talent and organizational culture creates opportunities for increase productivity, higher retention and better communications between staff and departments.

    This highly requested virtual interactive presentation covers strategic methods of improving employee morale, improving operational efficiency, increasing employee retention and improving employee productivity; how to find it, how to harness it and how to keep it.[SD1]
