Watch 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, for round two of Okay, Boomer. Joe and Jake will revisit their inter-generational grievances and bust each other’s myths about manufacturing. They’ll overcome their differences and explore how new automation technologies are making manufacturing better for businesses and workers – of all generations. 

Attendees will learn (and bust) the following myths: 

  • Why don't millennials want to work in manufacturing? 
  • Why doesn’t my employer invest in me? 
  • Are Boomers anti-tech? Are Millennials tech obsessed?
