Hyatt Regency Perth
An unprecedented five generations will soon be in the workforce simultaneously, creating never-seen-before challenges for managers and HR professionals alike.
This forum will consider the significance of working in the multi-generational workplace. This is especially important topic for the contemporary public sector workplace that features complex award conditions, an aging workforce, and many cases of younger leaders managing members of older generations.
The forum will involve light hearted debate and discussion with a facilitated panel, together with active audience participation, focusing on important but related issues, such as:
•What motivates employee engagement
•Workforce attraction, retention and mobility
•Strategies for ensuring each generation remains engaged and productive.
•Communication strategies to cater for different preferences
•Differences in desire and ability to cope with change (incl technology etc)
•Differences in the motivation to work
•Differences in career expectations and aspirations
•How to transfer knowledge and experience from older to younger generations
The panel will be made up of a representative from four of the generations:
• Baby Boomers (born 1946-64)
• Gen X (1965-80)
• Gen Y (1981-95)
• Gen Z (1995-)
