The newest entrants to the workforce over the last 10 years, the Millennials (aka Generation Y), are challenging our thinking around traditional concepts of loyalty, work ethic, communication, technology, and work-life balance.

How are you adapting to this generation? Are “old” cultural and procedural mindsets affecting your ability to work with, motivate, and manage this critical mass of colleagues?

Join “20+ LeadersPack” and facilitator Shira Harrington for a luncheon and robust discussion surrounding the generational workplace issues that are impacting your career, organizations, and clients. Gain practical insights into engaging the Millennial generation with particular emphasis on communication, work-life balance, technology and performance management issues.

An exclusive forum for senior level professionals with at least two decades of experience to build relationships, offer support, and jointly address common challenges and concerns. “20+ LeaderPack” offers facilitated discussions that tap into the collective wisdom of the Washington area’s top PR professionals.

About our Facilitator
As Founder and President of Purposeful Hire, Shira Harrington helps employers and job seekers discover their mutual purpose. She is also a keynote presenter and staff trainer on managing the multigenerational workforce. An outgrowth of her successful recruiting career, Shira brings her extensive research and her unique, ‘real world’ perspective of the world at work to bridge the perceived gaps between the generations and prepare executives for the coming labor shortage. Differences in work ethic, life values, work-life expectations, teamwork, communication styles and relationship to authority are just some of the challenges facing employees of each generation.  Moreover, as Baby Boomers prepare to retire, employers are likely to be short-handed unless succession planning begins now.

Shira has presented her generational findings to human resources professionals, staffs and association conferences. Shira has been published in the monthly magazine of the Council for Advancement and Support of Education, has been quoted in Federal Computer Weekly and has been profiled in the Washington Business Journal.

Shira plays an active role in the Washington, DC metropolitan human resources community. She is President of the Human Resources Leadership Forum; she was formerly the Vice President of Programs for the Human Resources Association of the National Capital Area and was on the program committee of the Finance and Administration Roundtable. Additionally, she runs a monthly brown bag lunch for human resources professionals. Shira earned her Masters in Public Relations, with a focus on employee communications, from the University of Maryland at College Park.
