Motivating a Multi-Generational Workforce is designed to appeal to employees of all ages through a variety of fun, interactive exercises, such as role playing, networking, active listening activities, and collaboration building. By stepping out of their comfort zones, audience members will be able to walk in each others shoes for an afternoon and see the business world through each others eyes.
