Generational Cultural Competence

Do you have an effective intergenerational workplace?

A lot of times this question is answered with a blank stare, but being “generationally competent” can make all the difference in your workplace.  Do you see conflict between older and younger generations?  Do the younger employees talk about wanting more freedom, flexibility, and opportunities for creativity?  Do the older employees roll their eyes when presented with yet another idea from a Millennial?  And why do these kids insist on wearing flip flops to work?  What’s up with that? 

So what’s the big deal?  Why does it even matter?  Research shows us that each generation has its own strengths, challenges, and values, and each responds differently to workplace must-have’s like communication and feedback.  But guess what? All the generations are seeking the same thing in the workplace, they’re just doing it differently.  We all want to be actively engaged in our work–and that’s the key–how do we engage all generations effectively so that everyone is putting 100% into their work?

Do you want to work for a dynamic intergenerational workplace?  Then, join us on September 15th from 9-11am at English Foundation Building (615 N Alabama St, Indianapolis, IN 46204)  We will be discussing the differences between generations, exploring workplace needs, and strategies for creating an effective intergenerational team.  Space is limited and the cost is only $10.  RSVP today at kristin@catalystxchange.org
