SHARON, PA – In an effort to address the increase of multiple generations in the workplace with statistics pointing to the highest level of workforce age diversity by 2020, the Shenango Valley Chamber is presenting “Prospering with a Multi-Generational Workplace” Workshop, Panel & Luncheon 11 AM – 2 PM Thursday, Sept. 26 at the Park Inn by Radisson Sharon, 3377 New Castle Road, West Middlesex.
“This event was planned after many area businesses expressed challenges with a variety of age groups in their place of work and the struggle that come from smoothly managing different age groups together,” said Moreira, adding that attracting and retention of young professionals is a key challenge. “The chamber invited Kelley Ashby Consulting, an expert in this field, to help us address some of these specific challenges in our area.”
According to Kelley Ashby, founder and CEO of Kelley Ashby Consulting, who specializes in developing and delivering customized training and business consultation services focused on “Multiple Generations in the Workplace” and “Emotional Intelligence”, the 2020 workforce will see one of the highest levels of age diversity, with most workplaces having five generations working side by side including “Traditionalists, Baby Boomers, Generation X, Millennials, and Gen Z.”
Key points to be covered during the three-hour event include:
1. Characteristics of the various generations in the workplace
2. Challenges of an age diverse workforce
3. The impact of age diversity in the workplace
4. Critical considerations for attracting, recruiting & retaining age diverse talent.
5. Procedures and strategies that can be created to effectively manage an age diverse workforce.
Ashby’s workshop and panel is designed to help companies with creating a positive work culture and increase employee engagement, as well as help employees better understand the dynamics between coworkers. She is a certified Genos International Emotional Intelligence Practitioner and helps individuals improve their “EI”—a skill that is becoming an expectation in leadership and management roles—and works closely with organizations to create workplace cultures where employees thrive.
“We’ll be discussing the key to motivating and retaining an age diverse workforce as well as learn more about employee motivation which goes well beyond the usual monetary reward systems.” said Ashby. “Once we understand the differences between generations, it becomes easier to see how people across the generations can work together productively,”
The $40 ticket includes the workshop, panel discussion, lunch, hand-outs, swag bags and chance to win a giveaway. For more information visit
