Millennials Speak Out: How to Manage the GenX Boss

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The media is flooded with stories of this new generation of workers, their need for constant praise, and perceived sense of entitlement. Millennials are described as arrogant, needy, and lacking in the work ethic found in the generations that came before. Research shows that Millennials are confident, interested in personal growth & communication, and have a quick ability to learn new technology. Conflict in the workplace is erupting as Millennials collide with their GenX and Baby Boomer supervisors. Baby Boomers have a team orientation, respect hierarchy and are likely to be workaholics. GenXers, the original “Who Cares” generation, are self-reliant and pragmatic. They believe in doing a job without needing daily praise and feedback. Hear from a multi-generational panel about the tensions in the workplace and learn what skills are necessary to bridge these generational differences. Learn what companies are doing to create productive work teams and friendly policies.
