    Ages and stages

    According to the Harvard Business Review, "in four year, Millennials--the people born between 1977 and 1997--will account for nearly half the employees in the world." With Boomers and Traditionalists still in the workforce, we have begun preparing for the realities of an aging workforce. And, as generation 2020 joins these generations, along with generations X and Y, organizations may soon have an unprecedented five generation in the workplace at once. This creates an incredible opportunity to transcend generational differences and create safe, age-friendly workplaces.  

    In this course, we explore the differences and similarities between the generations with a focus on productive communication, effective training, and a safe workplace.
