Demystify the millennial generation at free workshops

Garden Centres in Leeds, Bristol and Guildford facing the challenge of understanding and employing a new working generation are invited to workshops with an international training company to help debunk the labels given to millennials (December, 2016).

Adaptis Ltd is hosting training workshops on December 1 in Bristol, December 13 in Guildford and December 14 in Leeds where employers can find out more about the strategies needed when employing a younger workforce.

Sara Burks, Managing Director at Adaptis Ltd., said: ?As more baby boomers head towards retirement, the millennial workforce is increasing and their impact cannot be undervalued. It is estimated that this influx of younger workers will make up 50% of the working population by 2020.

?As multiple generations attempt to co-exist in the same workspaces, managers face the challenge of understanding and successfully developing a new generation which seems, or is purported to be, very different from those who have gone before them.

?The purpose of these workshops is to understand exactly how millennial attitudes to work differ from their Generation X and baby boomer counterparts. Are these working attitudes and ensuing behaviours significantly contrasting generationally? The ?radical? changes within this incoming generation have been widely touted, but could certain millennial labels be purely conjecture?

?We will also begin to suggest strategies for resolving the generational ?behaviours gap? through a clearer understanding of cross-generational motivators, and the changing context around existing models of employment across the ages.

?Ultimately these workshops will review both the empirical and anecdotal evidence on generational differences in work values to give managers and other leaders a clearer picture of how to recruit, retain, and motivate the members of today?s multigenerational workplace.?

?The workshops will be free to attend. For more information or to request a place, please email
