Leading Millennials in a Multi Generation Workforce

Brought to you by the Leadership, Talent & Professional Development Committee

As part of our Future of Work series of events and activities, our Leadership, Talent and Professional Development committee have been reflecting on the key challenge of leading millennials in a multi-generation workforce. In many organisations, millennials already form half of the workforce and this shift has had a profound impact on how we motivate and engage our teams. It is changing the way we communicate, changing the cultures we are nurturing and changing the spaces we work in.

 
To help you make sense of this issue, we invite you to participate in our creative conversations event to share your perspectives and explore new ways to create the collaborative workplace of the future. Our experts will facilitate these conversations, helping you to explore what motivates millennials and other generations, and what leaders can do to meet their needs.
 
Sessions will be led by Elena Chipalova, Regional Head of Diversity and Inclusion at BP Singapore; Christopher Short, Principal at Dover Court International School, and Sheela Parakkal, Chief Human Resources Officer at our Future of Work Partner and venue host for this event, Prudential Assurance Company Singapore.
