Traditionalists. Boomers. Gen Xers. Millennials. And hot on their heels with their own distinct features–Generation Z! More generations working together than ever before — all are different and expect different things. Can we really accommodate all the diverse needs and wants AND maximize productivity and output?

Since people are the #1 asset at any organization – we must. In the new world of work, competition for top talent is fierce, and according to Deloitte’s 2016 Global Human Capital Trends survey, workers need “to be re-engaged and re-recruited each day”. Really?? That’s a lot to ask! Where “job hopping” is no longer taboo, businesses are continually reinventing themselves and adapting to the accelerated change.

Today’s CEOs are being held accountable for the workplace environment and culture (Wells Fargo, anyone?). Again from the Deloitte survey, 82 percent of respondents believe that culture is a potential competitive advantage.

Our best-in-the-business panelists will share why people stay and why they leave, how to create genuine teams across generations and demographics; and why the effort must roll all the way up to the C-Suite and the board. More companies are throwing out org charts of old, and embedding the HR function into strategic planning.

We are staying in the workforce longer and are capable of contributing for decades longer than in the past. Successful organizations recognize that while there is a constant need for new, fresh thinking, the value of experience and wisdom should not be underestimated.

When people seem more polarized than ever, join us in a very important conversation about pulling together.
