Today’s workforce is more diverse and cross-generational than ever. Understanding the multi-generational workforce is crucial for managers and professionals to bring success to their projects and organizations.

In this panel discussion, the panelist members will discuss:

  • What skills are lacking given the existing mix of generations in the workforce?
  • What do we have today viewing from different perspectives such as diversity, personality differences, open/closed network, generation factors, technology innovation?
