Different Generations - Different Approaches to Work™:
Leading and Engaging Millennials & Gen Z

It is important for every leader to be able to tap into the values and expectations of each generation to increase levels of engagement and productivity. This webinar provides deep insights into how generational differences impact engagement, with an emphasis on Millennials & Gen Z. We highlight how the two youngest generations differ and provide data from a national survey on Gen Z. We will examine how identities translate into behaviours in the workplace, as it relates to loyalty, authority and work styles. A model of organizational engagement will be presented which can be applied to all people practices to increase transparency, responsiveness and partnering. Tactics and techniques for how to increase engagement will be provided as well as leadership tips which can be applied right away.
