Age diversity in the workplace is a trend seen across the country but especially in New Hampshire where the median age is among the oldest in the nation. With 67 percent of Americans anticipating remaining in the workforce past age 65, age diversity is set to become a reality for employers.
With the help of a $12,500 grant from the Endowment for Health, Granite State College is excited to introduce an innovative training program focused on strengthening our state’s multigenerational workforce.
Launching in spring 2020, A Respectful Approach to Multigenerational Management and Leadership Workforce Development Efforts in New Hampshire will include three in-person sessions, online components, and ongoing coaching. Workshop participants will learn about key issues in the multigenerational workplace and nurture management and leadership skills that will foster a more engaged, collaborative community.
“In New Hampshire, where we face a statewide workforce shortage combined with an age profile that estimates over 25 percent of workers are 55 and older, retaining existing talent among older workers is critical,” shared Julie Moser, EdD, Associate Dean of Academic Engagement and Faculty Development at Granite State College. “Increasing respectful and culturally responsive multigenerational management and leadership competencies is an important way that we can address this gap and help employers meet their goals.”
The first workshop series will be offered to NH staff in key talent development roles for free in partnership with the Endowment for Health. Space is limited and applications will be available on granite.edu/multi-generational in March 2020 on granite.edu. For more information, contact email@example.com.
