Educational Series: Talkin' Bout My/Our Generation
There are many challenges employers are facing with the current workforce situation in Vermont, not the least of which is a shifting generation dynamic where older (Baby Boomers) are leaving the workforce in big numbers while a new generation (Gen Z) is making their entrance. In this fast-paced session, we will cover:
- The current demographics of our Vermont workforce and projections for the next 10-20 years. (Spoiler alert: the pool is getting smaller!)
- What the common themes/attributes are of each generation in the workforce AND some debunking of them, as well.
- Dealing with generational differences – how to continue to be open-minded and considerate in a world where we do need to deal with rules, laws, procedures, etc.
- Being proactive rather than reactive when stress and challenges of different generations come our way.
