The age gap in many workplaces can often span 40 years or more. This year’s Networks Autumn Series of free webinars provided members with the skills and tools to optimise this multigenerational workforce. 

During our five-webinar series we examined the habits and behaviours of each generation, discussed generational motivations; upskilling; recruitment challenges and targeted wellness.


Session 1 / The Workplace Generation Game

In this, the first webinar in the series, we laid the foundations for our series. We heard from Eibhlin Johnston from The Resiliency Hub, who shared her insights on each of the generations within the workplace, their habits, likes, dislikes and characteristics and we discussed the benefits and power of a generationally diverse workforce.

Session 3 / Recruiting Across Generations – Bias & Expectations

Understanding the unique recruiting needs of each generation is essential. There is no ‘one size fits all’ in the recruitment of new employees. In this webinar, Susan Nix, Client Director at Morgan McKinley shared her knowledge and understanding of recruitment needs across the generations. Susan provided insight into generational expectations, age bias, and each generation's preferred method of communication and requirements.
