From Millenials to Boomers: Alberta's workforce
Original Air Date:
Monday, September 16, 2013
Alberta’s workplaces are now populated by three generations of people—each of which has different competencies, expectations and perspectives. Cisco Canada has set up a Reverse Mentoring Program, in which junior staff members pass on their knowledge of the internet and social media to senior staffers. In the process, the Boomer develops electronic communication skills, and the Millennial becomes more invested in the company.
We're joined by: Mahyar Khosravi, junior staff mentor; Jeffery Maddox, senior staff mentee; Nitin Kawale. Cisco Canada; Laura Hambley, psychologist; and Phillip Hoffman, SAIT Polytechnic.
