In this keynote, Rochelle shares insights from her global research study on the changing world of work, and her personal work experiences, to help managers understand how to attract and meet the changing work expectations of Gen Y and Z in the workforce.
The world of work has changed rapidly and traditional ideas of how we should work are being challenged by younger generations. The stable nine-to-five position with a clear work structure, employment security and a primary location filled baby-boomers with reassurance for the future. The opposite is true for millennials and Generation Z who are pushing back against long-held work and management expectations, with greater demands for flexibility and purpose-driven work, more say in the work design and direction, and stronger work relationships to name a few.
Workplace harmony among all three generations is crucial to companies’ competitive advantage and firms have much to gain from cross-generational knowledge sharing. This keynote session will explore the expectations across various generations, highlight lessons learnt from successful case studies and advise organisational leaders on how they can benefit from the unique characteristics and experiences of their multi-generational workforce.
