November Partner Program: Leading a Multi-Generational Culture that Engages and Retains Employees

Facilitated by: Mike Scott, General Manager Dale Carnegie North Central U.S. and Jennifer Huber, Market Director, Dale Carnegie North Central U.S. 



For organizations to realize the full potential of a multi-generational workforce requires an awareness of generational differences, combined with a commitment to move beyond them through the development of trusting and productive professional relationships. Leaders, especially, are well-served to stay alert to their own bias, and help others get beyond the stereotypes.


While much of what matters for engagement is consistent across generations, success continues to require getting to know each other as individuals, valuing and appreciating each other’s contributions and helping to guide employees to achieve their specific career goals. The pay-off for successfully integrating workers of all ages is a powerful combination of enthusiasm, innovation, perspectives, approaches and experiences from which any organization can benefit.

What You’ll Learn- strategic and practical tools!

  • Uncover the employee engagement drivers that are relevant to all generations  
  • Develop an environment that helps engage and retain them through an organization’s succession planning process
  • Understand the recent research and results for employees in the workplace
  • Discuss strategies to positively impact engagement among multi-generations in your organization


Why you want to learn it

As leaders engagement starts with us. With millennials pouring into the labor pool, it’s important for your ongoing succession planning to know how to motivate and keep them. It’s not cost effective for organizations to offer extensive training to new hires, only to see them leave shortly after their training is complete. If you are able to engage and retain your employees, strategic goals and cost savings will be dramatic.
