File Type: Conference session
Release Date: October 2013
Development 13 in San Diego, CA

With many senior executives planning to retire in the coming years, the next generation of industry leaders needs to be developed and engaged now to fill strategically critical positions. Despite this knowledge, few organizations have implemented a formalized a process to dialog with this demographic and create a workplace environment where they can best contribute over the long term. Our panel will discuss how their respective firms successfully created an open dialog between senior management and their top young professionals, sharing their best practices in creating the most effective management and communications. Hear strategies designed to address issues related to work environment, technology, skills development, workplace flexibility, incentivization vis-a-vie retention, and new preferences in career progression. Leave this session with practical tools that can be employed to facilitate new work environment structures.
