GREELEY -- Do the work habits, basic manners and conversational styles of today’s emerging workforce leave you scratching your head? Do you struggle to understand other generations in the workplace or the classroom? Well, you are certainly not alone! Aims Community College is hosting a program that will explore generational issues in the workplace and the classroom. Jeff VanKooten, senior consultant with The Center for Generational Studies, will present “Hey Dude! Managing Age Diversity in Today’s Workplace,” on Thursday, Oct. 18 from 12:15 to 1:30 p.m. in the Aims College Center on the Greeley campus. This free program will review how generational differences are affecting the workplace and the classroom and how they can be understood and managed in pursuit of more harmonious relationships. “This is an issue we all face everyday,” said Jennifer Naimark, Program Coordinator for Professional Development at Aims. “Whether we are Generation X, Millennials or Baby Boomers, we all have to work together. This program will help everyone understand other people and what drives them from a generational perspective.” This session promises to provide insights into the thought processes and priorities of these very different groups and ways to motivate each generation.
