Imagine! You have youthful new 20-somethings working with a 60-year-old team member on the same project. These two team members work for the same employer but have very different expectations and perspectives of the company. Many companies are facing the challenge of employing a range of four and soon to be five generations. These include The Greatest (born before 1945), Boomers (‘46–‘64), Gen-Xers (‘65–‘80), Millennials (‘81–‘01), and the newest Generation Z (2001+). Millennials are emerging as the largest population in the work force and this has left some of the other generations wondering if we are entering “Millennial Madness” with a dysfunctional workforce. For engineering and fabrication companies, what are the challenges to overcome, strengths to leverage, and path forward for success? This presentation will present sound research, solid solutions and a cure for Millennial Madness!
