Topic:   According to Inc.com (2018), “Generational differences in the workplace have never been wider than they are today.” As a result, organizations are reassessing succession planning and competency-based talent management as a process for identifying and developing new workers who can replace previous workers. Organizations who do not have a comprehensive plan to address this concern are at risk in the transference of knowledge which is a vital resource to an organization’s existence. Organizations who have been successful in this process have done so through competency-based talent management and multi-generational engagement. Multi-generational engagement can include up to five generations of employees from the tenured Traditionalist to the emerging Generation Z employees.

However, this unique challenge is made more difficult due to the following:

  • Void in technical mentors that addresses each generational problem
  • Exponential rate of change in technology
  • Career expectations in conjunction with increased mobility
  • Ever changing learning and engagement models

To learn more about these challenges, please join us for an informative yet empowering round-table discussion on "How to Deliver on Competency Based Talent Management to Multi-Generational Employees." 

Come prepared to engage and learn from local prominent industry professionals on ideas and techniques to overcome obstacles to engage multi-generational employees through competency-based talent management. The facilitators of this event will lead participants in collaborative discussions that lay a contextual foundation for competency-based talent management. Participants will walk away with practical strategies for multi-generational engagement utilizing competency-based talent management.
