As utility fleet professionals grapple with replacing a large swath of workers who are retiring over the next few years, they need to attract more millennials and Gen Z employees to help fill the gap. And that means there could be as many as five generations represented in your organization, each bringing a substantially different perspective toward their work and life, increasing the likelihood of generational tension and conflict among your team.
So, how can you more effectively manage employees across multiple generations to create a positive, highly productive work environment? Jim Finkelstein, author of the book "Fuse: Making Sense of the New Cogenerational Workplace," will offer real-world strategies, based on extensive research, on how you can overcome generational divisiveness and build a culture of collaboration that attracts top talent -- no matter what generation they represent.
With over 40 years of consulting and corporate experience, Finkelstein, the CEO of FutureSense LLC, understands the convergence of environment, culture, development and rewards in order to improve business performance through people. He has specialized in business and people strategy; motivation and reward; executive, employee and sales compensation; and organizational assessment, development, communications and transformation.
Finkelstein earned his MBA in Organization Behavior and Development from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and a BA in Psychology and Economics from Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut.
