Bridging the Generational Gap in the Workforce
Speaker: Christina Notarfrancesco, MA, PHR
Is your organization suffering from a retention challenge? There appears to be a strong correlation with an intergenerational workforce and experiencing high employee turnover. The nursing workforce is made up of four different generational cohorts. Some of the challenges stem from differences in workplace attitudes, work habits, beliefs, and expectations. The issue of generational differences has proven challenging for the nursing industry to both attract and retain qualified individuals in the workplace.
Christina will explore the generational differences present in today’s workforce and by the end of the presentation you will be able to identify generational stereotypes and how they might be affecting your organization. Christina will also offer some tips to manage the generational gap. By viewing your current workforce needs through a generational perspective, your organization will be well-positioned to handle the evolving challenges of four generations in the workplace.
