I Belong Here, electrical distribution’s resource for diversity and inclusion in the workplace, will host its first Voices table talk event “Attracting Tomorrow’s Talent with Today’s Leaders“ on July 17 from 1pm-2pm Central time. The event will feature nationally recognized speaker Steve Bench.
Bench customizes keynote presentations and training sessions that deliver engagement strategies for attracting and retaining Millennials, empowering Generation X, capturing Boomer wisdom and cultivating future leadership by leveraging the strengths of each generation.
Talent attraction and retention is the #1 issue facing the electrical industry in 2023, but at the same time millions of young employees are already disenchanted about the workforce and wondering how their professional lives will take shape in the coming years. As the Baby Boomers ride off into the retirement sunset, Generation X is left to manage an empowered Millennial generation raised with a new set of attitudes and expectations about their work-life balance. And just as we were beginning to understand Millennials, Gen Z is entering the workforce en masse! Now more than ever, we are called to value generational differences.
This keynote session focuses on talent attraction and workforce retention by building understanding of who we are, how we were raised, and how each generation views “work” as a part of their identity. Hear from Steven Bench on valuing generational differences, fostering engaging discussions to help strengthen relationships, and ultimately improving the culture of your workplace.
