How to Get, Keep & Grow a Multigenerational Workforce: Enhancing Your Talent Management Strategies

2014 Talent Management Conference
Workplace Application: Learn a framework for evaluating your HR practices and a process by which your organization can create talent management strategies designed to engage all generations.

Organizations today face the challenge of creating high-performing environments that produce business results. Each of the four generations in the workforce cohorts possess unique identities that translate into different expectations and behaviors in the workplace. It is important for you to evaluate and respond to the expectations of a multigenerational workforce in order to recruit and retain the best and brightest and create an engaging work environment. To achieve this, your talent management and leadership behaviors must reflect high level of engagement - defined as transparency, responsiveness and partnering. The session begins with an overview of the four generations and how these identities translate into behaviors in the workplace, as it relates to loyalty and work styles. We review how generational identities impact your organization’s ability to get, keep and grow high performing employees.
