CFOs are grappling with generational differences in their workforce. Baby-Boomers, born between 1946-1964 are competitive, challenge the rules, and tend to think that workers should pay their dues.  Gen-X, born between 1965-1977 are more likely to be skeptical, independent-minded, and change the rules.  Gen-Y (Gen Next, Millennials), born between 1978-1989 like teamwork, a ton of feedback, and create the rules.  Gen-Z (iGeneration, Centinnials, Selfie Generation), born between 1990-1999 are entrepreneurial, technology-based, and customize the rules.  The key is to be able to effectively address and take advantage of the differences in workforce values and expectations of each generation.



  • Get to know more about all generations of the workforce and the positive contributions they can make to your productivity and bottom line.

  • Learn how to create mentoring opportunities across all generations.

  • Discuss how to develop communication plans with and incentive plans that reflect where all of your employees are in their lives.

  • Leverage your entire workforce’s expertise.
