We are approaching a time when your business will have to manage the needs and behaviours of four different generations all at once. And make no mistake, each generation behaves very differently.

A multi-generational workplace is inevitably a complicated one. People of different ages typically have different perspectives on the world. They disagree on the most fundamental issues. They dress differently, eat differently and travel differently. And more pertinently, they work differently.

Unfortunately, as has been proven throughout human history, people often react adversely to change. It’s in our very nature to mistrust those who behave differently to ourselves; anyone whose values, attitudes and motivations do not reflect our own.

So, logically, the more the demographics of your office vary, the harder it is to manage everyone harmoniously.

Baby boomers are natural leaders. Generation X are resilient and cautious. Generation Y are relaxed and instinctively creative. But what can you do to get the best out of each group? And how can you maintain harmony at the same time?

This insightful session, led by Russell Beck, Impellam’s Head of Consulting, uses the latest research to help you understand:

  • What defines each generation
  • The political, social and technological factors behind their contrasting behaviours
  • How they behave at work
  • Their strengths and weaknesses
  • Potential areas of conflict
  • How you can successfully manage a generationally diverse workforce
