There’s still time to sign up for tomorrow’s exciting inclusion=innovation event.
Managing generational diversity to maximize organizational and individual success is the focus of this next program, to be held tomorrow, Thursday, Oct. 20, noon-1:15 p.m. at the Charleston Area Alliance offices.
Yesterday’s trophy kids are today’s employees. So it can come as a culture shock all around when millennials, who were raised in an era of helicopter parents and a trophy for every kid on the team, get their first real job and meet the Gen X’ers and baby boomers who are their co-workers and bosses.
This program will highlight successful strategies for both young professionals and managers to work across generational boundaries and harness the potential and creativity of workers of all ages.
The agenda will include discussions on:
• Why should I change for them?
• Is loyalty dead?
• Mentor, boss or babysitter?
• Are you ever “off the clock”?
• Social media: friend or foe?
Speakers include: Emily Bennington, a college-to-career expert and founder of Studio 365; Skip Lineberg, chief innovation officer, Spilman, Thomas & Battle; and Pat Kelly, executive director, West Virginia Health Care Association.
Bennington and Lineberg are the co-authors of “Effective Immediately: How to Fit In, Stand Out and Move Up at Your First Real Job.” Kelly is the author of “Rainmaking 101: How to Grow Your Client Base and Maximize Your Income.”
Before the event, please share your views on today’s workplace via a short survey (See link below).
“Managing Today’s Workforce” is presented as part of inclusion=innovation, an initiative of Alliance and Title Sponsor Ernst & Young. Studies show that diverse teams boost an organization’s innovation and earnings potential.
“Inclusion=innovation” aims to help businesses and our region benefit from the contributions of all segments of our community.
Registration, which includes lunch, is $25 for Alliance members and $35 for future members.
