    For business owners and managers – Choice Title is sponsoring a forum and luncheon: Generational Workplace Solutions.  This event will be presented by Brad Gingras at WITC – Ashland.  Doors Open: 12:30pm check in and light lunch of sandwiches, fruit, chips, desserts and beverages.  Presentation will be 1 – 3pm.
    There are four, soon to be five, different generations represented in today’s workforce, each with a core set of values and characteristics that differ from each other. These variances produce frustration, confusion, and misunderstanding. Complicating these differences further is an ever-evolving set of societal ‘norms’ and technology. Workers under the age of thirty can’t recall a world without email, while many Baby Boomers are struggling to grasp social media and how Millennials perceive a job.  Gaining an understanding of each generation’s characteristics is the key to an effective and happy workplace. Generational Workplace Solutions will provide tips and strategies to help understand, motivate, and succeed with each generation, with an emphasis on Millennials, and leave the audience with thought-provoking ideas that may change how you not only view your co-workers, but also yourself.  Please RSVP your company name and names of attendee(s) to orders@usechoicetitle.com.
