Workplace demographics now span four generations — from traditionalists and baby boomers to Gen Xers and Ys. The audience of 120 at the recent Bridging the Gap program, comprised mostly of HR professionals, managers and decision-makers, received an in-depth look at the studied generations, learning about the needs and motivations of workers across the age spectrum, and how to create effective multigenerational workplaces.

AARP’s Washington, D.C.-based Deborah Russell, Director of Workforce Issues, set the tone as keynote speaker by discussing the changing dynamics of generations in the workplace. She was then joined by a regional panel of experts: David Marks, Chair of The Bridge Network and Financial Analyst, Campbell Soup Company; Claire Simmers, Ph.D., Professor, Haub School of Business, St. Joseph’s University; and Marjorie Stein, Esq., Director, Employee Relations, CIGNA
