There are currently five generations in the workforce, and employers faced with mass retirements of baby boomers are looking for ways to prepare for the changes that will result. This one-day workshop examines the history and reality of the generation gap as an issue.
Whether defining the actual limits of each generation is really important, or the merits of people within the context of employment, is the bigger issue that is explored. Understanding others helps us to understand ourselves and to manage the people that we work with. Problems, solutions, and strategies are explored to help overcome issues of the generation gap.
Specific learning objectives include:
Develop understanding of where the generation gap issue surfaces, and the impact it has on the modern workforce
Understand and apply language that is specific to each generation currently in the workplace
Explore organization strategies that overcome gap issues
Evaluate the need and effectiveness of recruiting, retention and succession plans in context of the generation gap
Leading Training is focusing on providing virtual training
courses for the foreseeable future and will only consider
in-person and classroom training on request, with a required
minimum group size of four delegates. We remain committed to
offering training that is fast, focused and effective.

Should you need this course urgently, the following options are
Pay for 6 delegates (whether you have them or not) and we will

If you have fewer delegates and cannot pay for 6, we can negotiate
a shortened course where some of the time will be spent in blended
learning - watching videos and doing tutorials and exercises with
some contact time with the trainer. We would want to discuss what
your core needs are so that we cover those aspects. You need to have
paid for 3 delegates at least.
