About the Session
This session will be held at the Swissôtel Chicago; includes a 15-minute break.
The existence of multiple generations in today’s complex healthcare environment presents unique challenges and unfamiliar terrain for healthcare leaders. For the first time in history, the workforce spans five generations with the newest generation cohort entering the workforce in 2020. Managers are increasingly grappling with generational differences, and lack of understanding regarding these unique differences contributes to conflict within working relationships, lowers productivity and increases turnover.
This panel discussion will provide an overview of current generational trends and characteristics, and the challenges they present for healthcare leaders. The panel, composed of a member from each generational cohort, will address questions and provide feedback on their specific beliefs, values and workplace characteristics while exploring specific challenges healthcare leaders encounter with multigenerational organizations. Through these discussions, you will gain a better understanding of how multigenerational conflicts affect organizational culture, recruitment, retention and employee satisfaction. When it comes to managing a diverse multigenerational workforce, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. This seminar’s objective is to provide you with a better understanding of your employees and the trends impacting an inclusive workforce so you can create an environment where your staff works in harmony and performs at a higher level to make your organization stronger from the inside.
- Identify and understand differences in multigenerational groups and challenge yourself to respect and appreciate an inclusive workforce.
- Gain tools and techniques for bridging generational gaps and envision how generational differences lead to improved collaboration and team performance.
