Leadership Track Sessions


Managing Change: Understanding the Demographics of the Evolving Workforce Friday, November 10, 2000 2:30-4:40 p.m.

Speaker: Marilyn Moats Kennedy

    There are four age cohorts in the workplace now and a fifth coming on by the year 2005. These five groups share some traditional values but differ on important ones such as the role of managers, employer/ employee /employee loyalty, and what constitutes a good day’s work. In this program we’ll get an overview of the workplace values and lifestyles of the groups that will dominate the workplace in the next century. For example, money motivates two of the five groups but is far less effective with the latter three. Time off, for them, is more important. We’ll look at ways of communicating that deliver the same message in ways that each group understands and responds to. Finally, we’ll look at predictions for 2005 and beyond as the Baby Boomers fade and Baby Busters take over.
