Workforce Development Series
Leveraging Generations to Recruit Generations
Thursday, April 2 | 1-2 PM ET
According to an AARP survey, most people—7 out of 10—like working with generations other than their own. The survey indicated “older workers appreciate younger colleagues’ tech skills, creativity, and new perspectives. And younger employees value older coworkers’ wisdom and experience with navigating the workplace.” The senior living industry demands and depends on successful generational collaboration—for its operational outlook, for the resident experience, and for the future of its workforce.
And yet, this is one of the most common problems in our workforce: How do we create workplaces that attract and engage the next generation of potential employees? This webinar will take a two-pronged approach to this problem – from the workforce and resident engagement perspectives.
