"Generations Inc. - Getting the Most from an Age-Diverse Workforce"

In this highly charged, participatory presentation, Meagan and Larry Johnson outline the dominant generational forces in the workplace and how each generation’s “generational signposts” drive motivation, influence loyalty and the delivery of high quality services. Failure to create a multi-generational team that is efficient, effective and productive puts future growth and sustainability at risk. Ignoring the drastically diverse ways generations learn and communicate with each other is tantamount to turning your back on a tsunami. Gen X daughter Meagan Johnson and her father Larry Johnson, a Baby Boomer, present original ideas and innovative strategies for getting the most out of five distinct generations of workers. They offer strategies and tips tailored to five generations of executives, managers, and employees.
