Future of Workforce Discussed at WKCTC December 2

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics, over four million workers were displaced from jobs between January 2011 and December 2013. This is the kind of job market issue that will be discussed at West Kentucky Community and Technical College December 2.

"What's Happening in the Workplace with Four Generations at Work" is a full-day seminar taught by Certified Personnel Consultant, Mickey Brown. The seminar will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Emerging Technology Center, Room 140. The cost of the seminar is $35. Lunch is provided.

Brown will discuss strategies to help bridge generational gaps providing information to help all generations to understand and work well with each other. He will cover how values, beliefs, work ethics and workplace goals for each generation will effect communications, decision-making, how work is refined and how it gets done.

This is the most important issue impacting the workplace in the next 10 years, said Kevin ONeill, WKCTC community education director. We must be prepared to understand the similarities and differences of each generation in order to build strengths to achieve an organization's maximum potential, and thats what this seminar is all about.
