Creating a Thriving Multi-Generational Workforce

By | July 26, 2023August 9th, 2023

In today’s working environment, you’ll find people of various ages, backgrounds, experiences and qualifications all collaborating in the same space. With all of the different perspectives and talent, this usually makes a stronger team with a better output. However, it can also be a challenging if you don’t know how to manage or communicate to the different audiences.

The five common challenges companies face when it comes to leading a diverse group of employees across different generations include:

  • Different priorities
  • Preferred communication styles
  • Work/life balance expectations
  • Training and development opportunities
  • Change and innovation

The Making Our Strong Community Stronger initiative is excited to invite you to the next DEI session about “Creating a Thriving Multi-Generational Workforce.” Join us at SHARE New Orleans on Monday, August 14 at 9:45 -10:45 am. Dr. Gloria Chance, CEO and Founder of The Mousai Group, will moderate a panel discussion exploring how multigenerational mainframers are bridging the age gap within their organizations. Come hear your industry peers:

  • Acknowledge the age gap in the industry
  • Discuss the realities of multigenerational workplaces
  • Explore what it is like to be older/younger/mid-career as the demographics of your workforce shift
  • Examine the challenges/opportunities that exist
  • Discuss ways for all to thrive

Making Our Strong Community Stronger, sponsored by BMC, Broadcom, IBM, Open Mainframe Project, Rocket Software, TechChannel and Virtual Z Computing, will also host a reception at SHARE on Monday evening from 7:00 – 8:o0 PM in the Empire C Room.
