‘Managing Generation Y in the Workplace’ Workshop
Managing Generation Y (18-35 year olds) in the Workplace
- Do you or your clients find managing younger team members difficult?
- Do you or your clients struggle to understand, engage and motivate junior colleagues?
- Are you losing young talent because you can’t seem to understand or meet their needs?
- Would you like to learn how to manage and understand this generation better?
If the answer is 'yes' to any of the above, this workshop is for you. More and more, the challenges of having four generations working alongside each other are becoming apparent. Employees in their 20s and early 30s appear disengaged, lacking in loyalty and commitment, whilst their Baby Boomer managers (those born between 1946 and 1964) continue to be mystified and frustrated by the needs of this pandering generation. Communication breaks down, talent you've invested in ups and leaves, threatening the productivity and efficiency of the organisation. So, what do you do?
By attending this workshop, you will gain expert knowledge (drawn from research and Alice's experiences) of what employees in their 20s and early 30s (often referred to as Quarter-Lifers, Millennials or Generation Y) really need and want from you as their manager or HR/Training Department. Only by understanding these needs can you begin to truly utilise and develop the distinctive talents of your younger colleagues. You will learn new solutions and approaches to manage and retain this generation more effectively, and will be given the opportunity to share the specific challenges you are facing with other like-minded professionals. This is a great way to then share tips and discuss what solutions have worked for others in the past.
Who should attend?
Managers and HR/L&D/Training Departments (or consultants working with them) looking to improve:
- Management skills
- Staff development
- Talent management
- Staff retention
- Employee engagement, performance and job satisfaction

I admit I found some of the sessions quite challenging, mainly because they forced me to address some of those obstacles that I've felt have held me back and stopped me from really going after my dreams. The tools that Alice gave me have been really helpful, especially the tools which helped me to identify strengths and value sets. I also plan to work a lot more on my confidence issues and turning a negative mind set into a positive one. I’ve really enjoyed meeting and working with Alice over the past few months. She has a real talent for asking questions in a way that gets the best out of people and immediately puts you at ease.
