About this Session:

Attracting and engaging talent across multiple generations is an absolute necessity today. Not only do our organizations need to appeal to Baby Boomers, Gen Xers and Millennials, but we also need to be prepared for the Gen Z’s who are already entering the workforce. Join our two panelists, Jennifer Ives and Shaara Roman, to hear about the latest research and trends in performance management, onboarding and leadership development that can help you shape a compelling employment value proposition and brand. They will also share practical tips and insights from client organizations that have made the shift.
