Working with Generational Differences

Today’s managers face multiple challenges in the workplace, but one frequently recurring challenge is that of managing different generations at once in the same workplace.

In recent years we’ve witnessed the emergence of four (and soon five) generations in the workforce. Differences and diversity can help build a highly productive environment, but the management of these differences is key to any workplace success.

This one day trainer led workshop will combine theory with practical and relevant activities.
