Joyce Maroney, director of The Workforce Institute at Kronos Incorporated, welcomes fellow board members Dan Schawbel, bestselling author, founder of, and managing partner of Millennial Branding, and John-Anthony Meza, human resources officer (HRO) for the Community Health Accreditation Program (CHAP), on Workforce Institute Radio to discuss the future of talent management in an increasingly diverse and multi-generational workforce. Topics discussed on the podcast include:

  • The shifting generational landscape of the workforce and what that means for employees, managers, and the companies they work for;
  • Stereotypes typically tied to each generation – Baby Boomers, Generation X, and Millennials – and whether or not these workplace generalizations are accurate;
  • The impact of Millennials comprising the largest portion of today’s U.S. workforce and their move into leadership positions;
  • How organizations can prepare for the Baby Boomer brain drain by implementing educational programs that make younger workers more workplace-ready while harnessing the knowledge of their more experienced workers;
  • Skills that need to be developed and cultivated by organizations in order to prepare the next generation of workplace leaders; and
  • What “work-life balance” means today and how technology and worker perceptions are impacting how organizations manage their workforces.
