    Understanding and Managing a Multi-Generational Workforce-by Jeanine Wilson

    Jeanine Wilson has worked in the Human Resources field for 25 years. She has worked in hospitality, finance, broadcasting, manufacturing, pharmaceutical, medical device, and healthcare industries.  Jeanine is currently Director of Human Resources for Sutter Health, Shared Services –one of the nation’s largest non-profit health care systems. Sutter has over 1,200 employees in Utah.

    Today’s workforce is decidedly multi-generational. It is comprised of five generations— Traditionalists, Baby Boomers, Generation X, Generation Y (or Millennials), and a smattering of Generation Z—whose life experiences have each left indelible marks on their values, their work preferences, and our workplaces.

    Those differences in values and work preferences can create friction in the workplace -however, it can also be used as an advantage for a business if handled correctly. In today’s complex work environments, a multigenerational workforce presents unfamiliar terrain for many leaders. As a result, conflicts may develop due to the generational differences in core values and work-related issues. Other factors include economic and political differences, size of each generation’s population, and the transition of younger generations to leadership roles and social influences of the generational periods.

    We will explore and discuss items such as:
    · Specific challenges leaders encounter with multigenerational organizations
    · How multigenerational conflicts affect organizational culture
    · Your organization’s successes and difficulties in working with the various generations
    · Issues related to recruitment of a multigenerational workforce
    · The benefits of a multigenerational workforce

    Breakfast will be catered by Magleyb's Fresh so make sure you come hungry. A huge thanks to our breakfast seminar co-sponsors - Utah Valley University Business Resource Center and TBA
