Director- EAP Services,

UT Southwestern Medical Center

Topic: “Multigenerational Workplace: Bridging the Gaps”

We now have in the workplace a work environment of four generations. Some large companies have five generations. Recognizing there are differences in work values and expectations of these generations, conflicts have developed. This training will identify these generations, their work values and styles, and address the differences in order to provide workable solutions and management methods to work cooperatively together.
