Building Engagement with Work-Life Flexibility

Live by the mantra, “happy employees equal happy clients.” Culture and success are founded on it. Refer to your employees as rock stars, and treat them as such. In turn, your clients receive stellar service from happy employees who love where they work in part because they have the healthiest work-life balance possible. Learn how to achieve work/life balance in a multi-generational workforce through employee benefit programs, flextime/telecommuting and wellness initiatives.

Zap the Gap – From Bookers to Linksters, How to Work with Multiple Generations

This presentation will help participants to think more about the methods they use to reach out to the New Millennium, Gen X and Baby Boomer generations. Zap the Gap offers a comprehensive, thoughtful and humorous look at the generations of Americans in the workplace, and the life events that shaped each generation’s work styles, traits, buying habits and needs. Because generations are in a constant state of flux, what worked last year does not work today. What seemed like a perfect solution yesterday is the source of tomorrow’s problem. Learn from Meagan Johnson what you can do now to make the most of each generation in your workplace!
