Get the Gen Talk: Intergenerational Working - The Future Workforce is Now

When:     Thursday 16 April 2020, 8.30am - 10.30am
Where:    TBC

By 2025, Millennials will make up 75% of the workforce, yet many organisations are still grappling with the unique challenge of having four different generations in the workplace.

This talk will focus on young people (millennials / Gen Z) in the workplace and how to build a culture of better intergenerational working. Looking at some of the challenges that developing your young workforce can bring, along with tangible solutions that can help you encourage, develop and inspire a more diverse and unified workplace.

It includes a journey through the generations exploring (and challenging!) some of the stereotypical behavioural traits of Baby Boomers, Gen X, Millennials and Gen Z. The talk will ultimately challenge you to think differently about your approach to the next generation of talent and truly ask yourself… ‘Is your workplace ready for Young People?’

The session will be delivered by, Nicola Dillon – Senior Associate, Get the Gen.

Nicola is a chief believer in Young People and has maintained a lifelong passion to develop Young People. She is driven by making a difference and her passionate and optimistic approach supports employers in developing and improving their youth employment practices. Clients have described Nicola as inspiring, energetic and full of encouragement and Young People have described Nicola as fun which helps them to feel comfortable and to engage in a way, they never thought was possible. Nicola believes that when employers truly believe in and nurture Young People, give them a voice and provide an environment for them to grow and flourish magic happens.
