Workshop Explores Age Diversity in Workplace Oct. 31

OCT. 23, 2006--A workshop sponsored by Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College and the University of Wisconsin-River Falls office of outreach and graduate studies will explore the increasing multi-generational workforce on Oct. 31 at Hudson Hospital.

This seminar provides solutions to overcome the challenges of working in a multi-generational workplace, including an understanding of why generational differences have an impact on productivity, how organizations can work toward overcoming age-related differences, and how to identify strategies for boosting the quality of supervision between age groups.

Workshop facilitator Sally J. Field has more than 18 years of human resource and management experience. As president of Sky's the Limit Coaching and Consulting, she has developed training seminars, workshops and individual coaching sessions.

Participants will also learn historical events and cultural icons of each generation and how they influence work ethic, perceptions and attitudes as well as how to foster understanding among co-workers and how to help the transfer of knowledge between veteran employees and their younger counterparts.

Cost for the workshop is $39, which starts with registration and continental breakfast at 8:30 a.m. followed by the program from 9 to 11:30 a.m. For a registration form, call the UWRF office of outreach and graduate studies at 425-3261. The Hudson Hospital is located at 405 Stageline Road.
