Generational differences. We keep hearing about it, and we keep expecting the buzz to go away. But it's not. With half of the full-time workforce being Millennials, and up to 75% of the workforce being Millennial by 2025, teams are trying to figure out what and if internal and external processes need to change, and how to hire, retain, communicate and motivate in a world of shifting demographics. In this interactive session, we'll move beyond, "Here's who the generations are," to what can we practically do as our demographics change.

"This was a great webinar! "

Sheila G - Gainesville, Florida

"I am a retired state auditor with the Florida Auditor General's Office. I really enjoyed this course and the speaker is terrific and makes it fun and interesting. Our office was hiring new graduates but was forcing them into an old framework of training; they weren't staying very long. Our elders all retired within one year so we lost experience. This course introduced some very helpful concepts/ideas for working with younger folks/all benefiting from each other's experience and strengths. "
