    Boomers Blackberries & Tweets: Navigating the Generational Minefield


    Technology is a great generational divide in today’s workplace. Look no further than the Millennial tapping away on a smartphone during an important meeting while the Baby Boomers in the room seethe! The four generations that make up today’s workforce—Traditionalists, Baby Boomers, Generation-X and Millennials—have starkly different relationships with technology.


    These clashes around technolog:

    1. underpin much of the workplace conflict between the generations and
    2. are iconic of other generation-based differences in values, perceptions and behaviors.


    In this fast-paced, interactive discussion, we will explore varying generational perspectives and attitudes, why they exist and productive steps we can take to bridge the “generation gaps” that technology presents in our own workplaces.


    HR Learning Objectives:

    1. Learn how to use social media for employee engagement and communication
    2. Learn tips for monitoring your own personal brand and the brand of your organization
    3. Learn about social media pitfalls and concerns
