Bridging the generational gap in the workplace

2013 November 21
by HISD Communications

Traditionalists, Boomers, Generation X-ers and Millenials—your birth year helps to define the generation you represent, but what exactly distinguishes one from the other—and why does it matter?

The Onboarding and Organizational Development Department is offering a new professional development session to help employees understand the values that motivate and inspire each of the different generational groups so that they can better serve their customers, both internal and external.

“If Only They Were More Like Us” will take place from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 10, at the Hattie Mae White Educational Support Center (4400 W. 18th St., 77092), and participants will learn more about:

  • Distinguishing traits among the four generations
  • Generationally defined differences in workplace values
  • Exceptions to the “rules”
  • How to bridge the gap in workplace interactions, with colleagues and supervisors

This session is designed to build interpersonal effectiveness skills.

Interested employees should register on eTRAIN using course code #OB0012 (oh, bee, zero, zero, one, two). A downloadable flyer (.pdf) is available.
