The Chatham-Kent Small Business Centre is hosting a virtual workshop to help address the opportunities and challenges working in a multi-generational setting.
The online event, ‘Thriving in a Multi-Generational Workplace’ is set to take place March 24 from 12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. and will look at how businesses can effectively operate and communicate with upwards of five generations working together.
“The dynamics of a workplace have never been more diverse when it comes to the needs of different generations of employees all under one roof, or in the case of social distancing due to COVID, all working from a variety of locations,” stated the Small Business Centre’s press release.
Matt Reaume, Economic Development Officer with the Small Business Centre, said the first session will look at the distinguishing factors of leading versus managing and will include a discussion about the characteristics of the Silent Generation, Baby Boomers, Generation X, Y, and Z.
“The goal is that people will leave the workshop with some tools and resources that can have an immediate positive impact with their teams,” Reaume said.
Gary MacDonald, founder and CEO of Clearview Training and Consulting, will lead the session.
“Gary will be able to help answer the tough questions that we know are facing organizations right now. After all, growth in an organization is not just about adding more people. It’s also about helping the people you have gel together so that you’re running at 100 percent,” Reaume said.
