Generations at the Workplace

The goal of the training is to point out how our hidden prejudices can lead to random discriminatory decisions regarding the cooperation of different generations, in our leadership, when selecting our new colleagues, when evaluating performance, during promotion decisions and in many other interactions with colleagues. During the training, we get to know the different generations, their motivations and the characteristics of their attitudes. We can raise awareness of our hitherto unconscious prejudices regarding other age groups. This can be the first step in overcoming them and changing our habits.
