Supervision Across Generations Workshop- April 9, 2018
Supervision Across Generations
Presenter: Stacy Simera, MSSA, LISW-S, SAP

The current workforce is comprised of multiple generations: Veterans, Baby Boomers, Generation X, and Millennials. Supervisors can improve their effectiveness by recognizing the unique needs, work habits, communication styles, motivating factors, and professional preferences of each generation. This workshop will explore the literature on supervising across generations and provide usable tools that can be applied in social service agencies.

  • Identify common workplace characteristics of 4 primary generations: Veterans, Baby Boomers, Generation X and Millennials.
  • Understand professional needs of each generation and common reasons for job turnover.
  • Recognize ways to adapt supervision elements to better meet the needs of each generation.
  • Recognize the role of cultural competence in effective supervision.
  • Identify resources available to supervisors.
