Monday Morning Speaker Presentation:

How to Land a Job Faster and Get Top Raises - Understanding the Multi-Generational Workforce.

With Valli Swerdlow, MSW

What you will learn at the session:

Promises of the presentation -- what it will cover:

    The key to how to land a job faster and get top raises is to explore the attitudes, values and expectations of the four generations:
    Traditionalists, Baby Boomers, Generation Xs and the Millennials.
    Understand what motivates each generation to increase corporate and organizational retention as well as promote innovation.
    Experience the gifts and differences that each generation brings to the workplace and how you will be more prepared to go to work and land a job with a different attitude.

Look around! You can’t help but notice people of all ages working side-by-side in most organizations. Did you realize that for the first time in history the following four generations are working together?

    Baby Boomers
    Generation Xs

Are these different age groups working harmoniously in organizations today? Could they be working more effectively with increased productivity?

The workplace challenges employees about how to talk, how to use body language and how to express themselves so that their messages are understand and acknowledged. But, have you ever had a conversation with someone from another generation in which you did not entirely understand the dynamics and walked away realizing you wanted to turn around and say, “Come again! Were you talking to me? If so, what did you mean? I don’t get it!”

Human Resource professionals have acknowledged the strain, or that a disconnect can happen among employees, especially of different generations, because of diverse perspectives on issues such as work ethics, attitudes, behaviors and leadership styles.Communication and collaboration are the keys to productivity and innovation.

One-size-fits-all or a cookie cutter approach to developing communication, leadership and motivation so as to ensure retention and productivity is not going to work.

If you are open to experiencing how you can be part of the solution to the multi-generational challenges at work and use it to land a job faster and get top raises then this presentation is for you
