KPA webinar looks at managing multiple generations

FAIRFAX, Virginia — It is the first time in history that four generations are working together in the workplace. With each generation, there are different values, attitudes and behaviors, and it can be challenging for the dealerships to manage.

Older workers may think of millennials as entitled and obsessed with technology. Millennials may think of older workers as being too traditional and stuck in their ways. Learning and communication styles vary significantly between generations, but having open communication with employees is critical to a healthy work environment.

This webinar, slated for July 25 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. ET, will explore the differences between each generation – Traditionalists, Baby Boomer, Generation X and Millennials.

This special presentation of, “How to Manage Across Four Generations,” by KPA’s Vice President of Human Resource Management Products, Kathryn Carlson, will discuss the many challenges of managing multi-generations, management best practices and tips to engage your employees from ages 18 to 80.

Participants will learn:

  • How to identify generations in your organization and their unique needs
  • How to capitalize on differing motivators for each generation
  • How to identify and remove communication barriers

Dealer webinars are provided by RVDA’s strategic partner KPA as part of the array of educational offerings available through the RV Learning Center.

Participants can register HERE.  Contact Allyson Lewis at Alewis@kpaonline.com  or Karin Van Duyse at the RV Learning Center at kvanduyse@rvda.org with questions or feedback.
