Unpacking the “New Diversity:” A Multi-Generational Workplace


As global HR leaders and numerous studies will tell you, the cornerstone to building the strongest team is building the most diverse team – one that runs the spectrum of personal experiences and perspectives. Yet, contrary to popular belief, diversity isn’t solely about hiring a variety of ethnicities and cultures – it’s about age, too.
In 2018, we have five generations working in the same offices, each with their own views about what makes a great team member. Naturally, each generation has its strengths and weaknesses when it comes to the workplace and it’s very human for one generation to criticize another for what they perceive to be the other’s weakness. However, if we take a closer view, we can learn that each generation brings a very valuable perspective and set of skills to the table.
In this session, YapStone’s Chief People Officer, Deb Tenenbaum, will explore the multi-generational workplace and how forward-thinking human resource professionals can tap the power of Baby Boomers, Generation X, Millennials and Generation Z, as they fulfill the company’s core mission.
