Boomers and Millennials in the Workplace - Can They Get Along?
Thursday, March 27, 2014 6:35 AM

Boomers and millennials may have different views of work and life, but that doesn’t necessarily mean there will be generational conflict in the workplace. According to a recent UBS survey on investor behavior, millennials – like boomers – are conservative savers, and millennials also keep cash on hand, as boomers do. 

Another study, by the human resources company Randstad, found that both millennials and boomers enjoy their jobs more than workers in other age groups. Some 89 percent of what Randstad called "mature workers" and 75 percent of millennials said they like going to work, and strong majorities felt energized about giving it their all. 

So knowing that boomers and millennials do have some things in common – how can they learn to get along and communicate more effectively in the workplace? At the Cornerstone Credit Union League’s Annual Meeting & Expo April 22-24 in San Antonio, Texas, Attorney Frank Drake will present, “How to Talk to Boomers.” According to Drake, plenty of attention gets paid to “How to communicate with a Millennial”, but who teaches the Millennials how to talk to The Boss? This informative session will examine how millennial’s can more effectively communicate with management members who write in cursive, still carry flip-phones and demand paper memos  with complete sentences and correct grammar.

Online registration is now available for Cornerstone’s Annual Meeting & Expo. The theme for this premiere event of the year is one team…one dream, United for Good. This year’s conference features three general sessions and 23 educational sessions.
