Gen Z: Managing the Cultural and Communications
Gap Between Generations
  Sponsored by   

There are now four distinct generations at work in the construction industry—Baby Boomers, Generation X, Millennials and, increasingly, Gen Z. Jobsites and offices see daily interaction between all four; yet, the form—and tone—that these conversations take is different and can become, at times, a source of unintended friction. Learn how to mitigate these potential flash points in the workplace and create an environment where each generation can help others learn and evolve!
