Ever 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.
Bench 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 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.
Bench will provide an overview of talent attraction and retention strategies to overcome generational differences and attract Millennial and Gen Z employees and keep them from leaving. Adulthood has changed, and depending on life stages, some may prioritize lifestyle over career. Bench will provide tips on how to manage and motivate someone who may not be as committed to their job as in previous 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.
Due to COVID-19, the traditional Employee Enrichment Day has been downsized to this morning event. This year’s event is organized by the following UWL staff members: Janet Craig, Tammy Haakenson, Karen McGarvey, Brad Quarberg and Becky Yoshizumi.
