An internationally published research paper was constructed while the certified presenter of this MD Training Session, Roy Mundy PE, served full-time on the faculty of that accredited research institution. The values and attitudes of various generations that once were ordinary assumptions in society have in large measure been validated and delineated by this research project. Given these confirmations there are steps we can take to minimize the potentially conflicting value systems of people interacting within an organization, for the betterment of not only the organization but the individuals who comprise it as well. This presentation and the discussions it’s sure to generate involve:
- The retention of institutional knowledge from retiring employees,
- identifying which reward systems motivate different generations,
- recognizing the multi-tasking capabilities of millennials as an organizational resource,
- increasing workforce efficiencies by identifying and utilizing the generational differences within it.
