Event Details

For the first time in history, four generations share the workplace. Not managing generational differences can result in a clash of communication styles and work ethics that can create cultural chaos. Employees from all generations must take on the responsibility to overcome the generational differences and bridging the generation gap.

Our speakers will represent in full the different generations and share their direct experiences on how they understood generational dynamics and recognized the generational differences to keep employees connected and engaged in the Procurement Department.
