Okay Boomer: Closing the Generation Gap in Manufacturing
Originally Recorded March 08, 2022 | 2 PM - 3 PM ET
ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
Baby Boomers vs. Millennials is a conflict usually waged over memes and TV shows. But in manufacturing, where retiring Boomers are not being replaced by younger generations, different expectations about work, culture, and career pathways in manufacturing come to a head. How does the generational conflict between Boomers and Millennials impact manufacturing businesses?
Join Joe Campbell, a robot industry Boomer, and Jake Hall, a manufacturing Millennial, as they share their inter-generational grievances and bust each other’s myths about manufacturing. They’ll overcome their differences (hopefully), and explore how new automation technologies are making manufacturing better for businesses and workers – of all generations.
This webinar will answer:
- Why are Millennials killing manufacturing?
- Why don’t Boomers want to learn new things?
- “If I want to work with advanced technology, I shouldn’t work in manufacturing.”
- How should Boomer manufacturers mentor and manage the next generation workforce?
