Managing Multigenerational Employees
Many influences have shaped the lives and work experiences of various generations, namely the Baby Boomer, Gen X, Millennial (or Gen Y), and Gen Z generations.

In this course, you'll learn about the best practices and successful techniques for managing these multigenerational employees in the workplace. You’ll also explore methods for overcoming multigeneration challenges such as ageism and stereotypes to ensure that all employees feel respected and can make a positive contribution to your organization.
