Helpful Tips for Training Your Multigenerational Staff

On Wednesday, May 16, 2018, 2:00 pm EST

Today’s school nutrition professionals are comprised of varying generations. It can often be challenging to find common ground when training four (and very soon five) different generations. All have different values, motivators and learning styles. We all view the world through our generational filter and as you know what works for one person may not work for another. Thinking about training for different generations, different motivators and different learning styles may make your head spin! Yet training must take place and must also be effective. This webinar will provide insight to help you understand the differences of the varying generations, what motivates them, and how to successfully engage them in a training environment.

Successful completion of the webinar and quiz is awarded 1 SNA CEU, or 1 CPEU for RDs/DTRs.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify the differences across your multigenerational staff.
  • Describe tips for training across generations.
  • Summarize techniques for helping your staff retain their training knowledge.
