Organizations have historically dealt with diversity in terms of race, gender, disabilities, etc. They now have to deal with extreme age differences among members of the five generations working together side by side. Since each generation has different expectations for how they want to work, learn and communicate, human resources need to adapt and change their talent management processes to appeal to all generations. As globalization, constant connectivity, mobility, social learning, collaboration and contribution are becoming more and more pervasive, HR has to become more integral to ensure the organization's success. We will show you how HR can succeed in this rapidly changing work environment.

When that happens the way it should and often does (and too often doesn't) there is a bone-deep workplace culture satisfaction. Read more here
