Is your generation really better off than everyone else? Are there really differences between generations at work? And what will the new Generation Z (soon to be leaving college) be bringing to the party? In this breakfast seminar, we will look at these questions and the implications for our workplaces.

We bring ourselves into the workplace each day with all of our life experiences, attitudes and personal values. We may not always be consciously aware of it but these personal views influence how we interact with our colleagues, customers and other people and can be a source of misunderstanding or miscommunication. They also affect how we see the workplace, our engagement with our employer and our careers. One filter on these different views can be seen through the generation we were born into.

In this breakfast seminar, Cambridge-based HR consultant Kelly Drewery shares her ground-breaking research into generational differences in the business environment. Her research pinpoints the attitudes and assumptions that make each generation unique, understanding the factors that shape our lifelong attitudes to career, employment and engagement – from what we are willing to offer our employer to the deal we expect in return. We will look behind the current headlines on intergenerational conflict, with insights into what motivates the never had it so good Baby Boomer cohort heading towards the end of their careers, through to the expectations of never had it at all Gen Z youngsters now at the start of their working lives.
