THE IMPACT OF GENERATIONAL DIFFERENCES & THE IMPACT ON PROCUREMENT --- MASTERING CAPABILITY
Never before has there been such a diversity of generations in the workforce. With competition for talent on the rise and the influx of millennials, there’s an even greater urgency to develop a culture of employee engagement and commitment, and that all starts with understanding how your multiple generations wish to continually improve and grow. Each group has their own sets of values, needs and motivators. During this interactive discussion, we will address the impact of different generations and the impact on procurement specifically. Attendees will leave with an understanding of what makes each generation tick, so that attendees may begin to craft a workforce strategy that meets their needs and motivates performance.
