Upcoming NBBJ conferences and events
North Bay Business Journal Business Symposium
Tuesday, March 28th 2023 Registration and Check in opens at 9:30
Topic: “Building an effective multi-generational workplace,” with renowned speaker Jeff Butler
Modern day workplace has four generations working under one roof. Baby Boomers, Generation Xers, Millennials and soon Generation Z all work together to accomplish common organizational goals. But with differences in each of these generation’s viewpoints, upbringings, culture, ideas, beliefs and experiences, it is likely to see some tiffs or clashes within the organization. This makes managing four different generations in the workplace an extremely difficult task to accomplish, though not impossible. With right guidance, support and advice, the task of managing these four generations under one roof is achievable. That support may come in various forms, one of which is this program.
- Discover potential points of generational conflict and tactics to handle them.
- Learn how to strengthen cross-generational communication.
- Obtain specific strategies to leverage multi-generational opportunities.
Date: Tuesday, March 28, 2023
Location: Flamingo Resort, Santa Rosa
- 9:30 a.m.: Networking and check-in
- 10:30: Presentation by Jeff Butler (“Building an effective multi-generational workplace”), followed by Q&A
