For the first time in American history, we have four different generations working and volunteering side by side. Discover the key characteristics of these four generations and explore new strategies for making the most out of age diversity. What motivates each generation? What types of recognition resonate with each generation? What strategies can you put in place to avoid conflict between generations? Leave the webinar with tools they can begin to use immediately to help bridge the work place generation gap.
This archived webinar was originally presented March 18, 2015.
