The Modern Learner
Today, the workplace consists of five different (and very distinct) generations. In fact, many organizations have over a 50 year age gap between the youngest and oldest employee. Meanwhile, each generation in the workplace has their own perspective, their own rules, their own working style—and their own approach to technology. Yet, in order for an organization to be productive, it is imperative for all of the generations to leverage technology as a group for learning, knowledge sharing, efficiency, as well as their own talent development. However, finding the right technology for every generation and working style has been a significant challenge, no matter the industry, the department, or the company culture. This presentation will focus on understanding the generations and how to maximize technology across today’s workplace, so ultimately everyone learns together and learns from each other.
