Much attention is being focused on the dramatic changes in workforce demographics in the US & around the world. Experts are particularly noting such things as: the aging of the current workforce; the shortage of workers to replace them; & the fact that new job entrants are a much more diverse group—in every way. To succeed, 21st Century organizations in the US must be able to attract, retain & motivate a workforce unlike any in our history. Some experts are skeptical about the ability of US organizations to effectively manage such a changing workforce—& are choosing to focus on the anticipated problems in building high performing 21st Century organizations. This webinar takes a different approach. Its purpose is to initiate a discussion focused on identifying factors most important in engaging & motivating all people: Factors that help integrate diverse individuals into a world class workforce. Additionally, we will discuss several emerging factors which hold great potential for motivating people including: neuroscience; social networking; the use of discretionary time; & more. Please join us in identifying & discussing factors which may hold promise in building the kinds of organizations that unleash human potential.
