For the first time in American history, four generations are working side by side in the workplace. The experiences that each generation had growing up could not be more different, and now HR professionals are reporting those generational differences are creating serious conflicts at work.
As director of Business World, Steve works with over 2,000 high school students each year and those students inspire his presentation, “Generational Differences At Work”. Steve provides the Millennial perspective through his lighthearted and fun presentation, examining the stereotypes and learning styles of our multigenerational workforce.
Ultimately, the audience is challenged with a call for empathy towards the life experiences unique to each Generation. This podcast makes you laugh, think, and most importantly, deliver ideas to use today, improving the way you work with people across all generations.
Steve Benzschawel is the Director of Business World, when Business World needed a new director in 2008, Steve jumped at the chance to teach young adults about business and entrepreneurship. Steve has coached AAU basketball for 10 years, he volunteers with Schools of Hope as an ESL tutor and he is a Big Brother to Marlo through the Dane County BB/BS program.
Steve is one of the Millennials he describes in his presentation and embodies his generation’s belief that some people do their best work with earbuds in, while texting, snapping, skyping and tweeting!
