Brought to you by united technologies
As Baby Boomers begin to retire, Millennials are the largest and fastest growing generation in the workplace, with almost 50% of every worldwide worker identifying as a Millennial in the next two years. With this transformation of generational dynamics at work, it is important to identify our expectations upon graduation in terms of communication, transfer of knowledge, and management styles. In this Generational Differences Luncheon Panel, you will hear from professionals from United Technologies, a Fortune 100 company rooted in legacy, as the company undergoes a tremendous shift in employee age demographics. Panelists will help us to identify and overcome the negative stigma around Millennials’ work ethic, while emphasizing the skills that will teach us how to excel as we begin to dominate the workplace.
