Employee Enrichment event is May 25

Wonder why Millennials and Gen Z colleagues/students often have a different perspective on things? Steve Bench, founder of Generational Consulting in Madison, has answers and will present “Attracting Tomorrow’s Talent with Today’s Leaders” at 10 a.m. Wednesday, May 25, in 1309 Centennial Hall. The talk will be preceded by a reception to reconnect and network from 9-10 a.m. in Hall of Nations, Centennial Hall. The events are free and organized by the Employee Enrichment Committee.  

            The keynote will focus on talent attraction and workforce retention by building understanding of who we are, how we were raised, and how each generation views “work” as a part of their identity. Examples can also apply to working with students from different generations.  

Funding for the presentation is provided by a University Staff Professional Development Grant and the University Staff Council. Refreshments are funded by the Provost Office.
