The ABC's of Keeping XYZ's: Managing Generational Expectations
Presented by Dr. Trish Holliday, Founding Partner, Holliday|Kenning

By the year 2025, Generation Y will comprise three-fourths of the workforce, and Gen Z, accounting for more than 25% of the US population, will start flooding the workplace. Ensuring Generation X feels valued and developed will increase the likelihood of retaining them. Each generation brings new expectations with it, and as a result, organizations must adapt and meet, or surpass, those expectations in order to find better ways to attract and retain the top talent crucial for organizational success. During this interactive presentation, discover what the modern worker cares about and strategies to keep them around, engaged, and happy.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify the 5 generations in today’s workforce
  2. Understand the characteristics of those generations
  3. Identify best practices for working with the various generations to create an engaged and productive culture

Schedule: Doors open at 11:00 am for registration and networking. Buffet lunch begins at 11:20 am, and the presentation starts promptly at 12:00 noon.

Biography: Tennessee was the first state in the country to establish the executive position of Chief Learning Officer (CLO), appointing Dr. Trish Holliday to this role. Trish fosters a culture that promotes engagement, encourages retention, and provides continuous learning and leadership development for all employees, ultimately positioning the state as a learning organization.

Dr. Holliday’s commitment and passion for helping professionals reach their greatest potential is rooted in her experience as an adult educator and certified executive coach, and her early years in full-time ministry as a missionary in Tennessee Appalachia. As a successful change agent, facilitator, and storyteller, she is often asked by executive leaders to undertake complex problem solving opportunities by bringing people together and helping them discover innovative solutions, and develop the leaders needed to execute.

As an award-winning leader, Trish is the cover feature in the 2019 March issue of the National Chief Learning Officer Magazine. She was named one of the 2019 Women of Influence by the Nashville Business Journal. Trish received the International Public Management Association for Human Resources (IPMA-HR) Warner W. Stockberger Achievement Award in honor of a lifetime of outstanding contributions toward the improvement of public human resources management.
