Does the job description really describe the job, or just the skills and required to do the job? How are we aligning people based on who (values, desires, lifestyles) and now what (age, sex, ethnicity) we are? How are we telling a different story?

You've also heard over and over that millennials are either lazy, entitled, narcissistic and not loyal, or that they’re hard-working, dedicated, selfless people. Which is it? What if it were both and neither at the same time? What if generations were a false construct altogether, and that there was a better way to group people; one that was not just descriptive, but predictive.

In this program, author and consultant Eric Termuende examines why the concepts of "generations," as they are currently known, should be thrown by the wayside and how you can really rehumanize the workplace from the top-down, and bottom-up again.


  • The concept of generations represents an outdated way of grouping people; as a result, engagement is suffering
  • Recognition starts before the employee is hired and begins with culture alignment
  • Knowing that work is bigger than just work, aligning employees values outside of work is just as important as inside of it.
  • While skills and requirements will always be the foundation, rarely will they be a differentiator.
