Does your organization struggle with challenges or conflicts due to multi-generational differences in the workforce? Do you need tips on how to engage and retain the newest generations while also improving your business? Millennials and Gen Zers currently make up more than 30% of the workforce in Hawaii, and by 2030 are projected to grow to 66% of the workforce. Our recent HEC members-only Multi-Generation Workforce survey sought to understand the issues that Hawaii’s Companies are struggling with the most.
With Hawaii’s unemployment rate at a record low of 2% and turnover costs high, it is imperative that Companies understand, embrace, and work through generational differences and learn to leverage the strengths of its employees across all generations. Those who do quicker will grow stronger, innovate more quickly, and create a competitive advantage for themselves.
During this session, participants will hear the results of the recent Multi-Generation Workforce survey, and learn ways to address the top challenges as identified in the survey results:
- Training supervisors and managers to be more “coaches” than “bosses.”
- Getting leadership to communicate the direction and goals of the company and how individuals fit into the bigger picture
- Streamlining and updating business processes to be more efficient and competitive.
