Talkin’ ‘Bout My Generation

Name: Talkin’ ’bout My Generation

Time & Date: Friday, October 29, 2010  9:00AM – 11:00AM

Location: Thea Koerner House, Graduate Student Centre, 6371 Crescent Road


Keynote speaker Sean Aiken, author of “The One-Week Job Project,” will speak about Generation Y, and finding engagement in the workplace. Sean provides a Gen-Y perspective on the things in a job and work environment that are important to younger workers: How to attract, retain, train, motivate and fully engage them in the workplace. The generational divide is often seen as a sharp contrast between older generations, that often do a lot of the hiring and supervising, and the younger workers who feel misunderstood and frustrated with the working experience. After experiencing 52 different bosses and being exposed to 52 different work environments, Sean shares what he learned and helps bridge this apparent divide.
