A Four-Generation Workplace. Now What?
The era of a multigenerational labour force is upon us. From millennials to traditionalists, and everyone in between, today’s workspaces represent global villages with diversity, making it even more critical to understand effective communication across generational lines. As more tech-savvy millennials begin to coexist with seasoned veterans, learning to create opportunity versus conflict can serve as a competitive advantage. Join us for a panel discussion on the “new workplace”, and how to manage and motivate a unique workforce.

PANEL: Moderated by Greg Hemmings
Greg Hemmings, Founder and CEO, Hemmings House Pictures
Don Hemmings, Producer and Photography Coordinator, Hemmings House
Kaiya Hemmings, Founder, HeartFun
Cherise Letson, Freelance Writer and Journalist
