ASTD is transitioning to ATD, the Association for Talent Development.
ASTD NEBRASKA presents:
Motivating the Hyper-Connected Generation:
Multi-Generational Workforce and Technology Issues
August 13th, 11:30-1:00 pm
Presented by Barbara Weathers, M.A.Today’s workforce is made up of staff and leaders from four different generational cohorts. Generational diversity—including workforce differences in attitudes, beliefs, work habits, and expectations—has proven challenging for leaders. With 78 million Millennials (Generation Y) entering the workforce and almost 80 million Baby Boomers approaching retirement, the need to work toward unifying a diverse workforce has become even more important.
New innovations now reach far greater households around the world faster than ever before. Consider that it took radio 38 years, television 13 years, the Internet 4 years, iPods 3 years, and Facebook only 2 years to reach a penetration of 50 million households. The prevalence of mobile phones, iPads, iPods, and social media tools have all paved the way for today’s hyper connected, or those who are always connected regardless of where they physically happen to be. These individuals, who currently comprise 16 percent of the workplace, are expected to increase to 40 percent of the workplace in a few years. For more information, click here.
