As experienced baby boomer employees are retiring, the rise of millennials in the workplace is increasing, with over 80 million people born between 1980 and 2000 in the US alone. Unfortunately, the stereotypes of millennials are affecting corporate America. Leaders struggle to adjust to the generational shift, HR is tasked with the need to develop new engagement models, and trainers attempt to understand diverse learning styles.
In her new book, Unfairly Labeled: How Your Workplace Can Benefit From Ditching Generational Stereotypes, Jessica Kriegel, Senior Organization Development Consultant at Oracle, points out that not only does such labeling create unfair biases and lead to inappropriate reactions, but in fact, there is no clear evidence to support the messages that the stereotypes convey.
Yet managers, political pundits and the media consistently use these stereotypes to make decisions and predictions, presuming to understand the collective tastes, ambitions, values and work habits of millions of people born in the same 20-year time span. The result is miscommunication among team members and lower productivity.
In this session, Kriegel will address:
· Unfair myths about millennials affecting their role in the workplace and politics.
· When are generational labels appropriate?
· Why we stereotype?
· How do learning styles vary by generation?
· What is the difference between generational traits and those tied to life stages?
· How to facilitate inter-generational dynamics in the workplace.
· Six steps to becoming an agent for change
