With five generations currently active in the workforce, differing motivations, value systems, skillsets, experiences, and attitudes to work can present considerable challenges.

However, multigenerational teams and workforces also present significant opportunities to share knowledge and capitalise on multiple strengths and insights. Furthermore, with the ageing population increasing and remaining in work, effective age management is key to future-proofing your business and avoiding a critical skills gap.

Join us for ‘Managing a Multigenerational Workforce’, to receive expert guidance on fostering cross-generational cooperation and supporting employees at all stages of their lives and careers. You will come away with crucial, actionable insight to harness the power of multiple ages, skillsets and experiences.

On-demand video recordings of each session will be made available to delegates following the event.
