Smith EMBA alumni and current students along with your guests are invited to

The event will include a brief discussion on the changing nature of the work

J. Tyser Distinguished Teaching Fellow and a Senior Executive Education Fellow with
a panel of smith EMBA alumni.
On January 1, 2011, the oldest members of the 78 million
member Baby Boomer generation celebrated their 65th birthday. Starting on January
1st, approximately 10,000 Baby Boomers a day turn 65. The birth of this generation
launched new directions in society so too will the retirement of these same individuals
impact the workforce and cultures of companies across industry and geography. Organizations
will have to understand both the opportunities and challenges presented by a workforce
that is drastically changing. The Millennial generation will have more opportunities
than previous generations as employers redefine what makes an applicant competitive
for a position – experience, advanced degrees, emotional intelligence, etc.? They
will impact the culture of a company with their technical savvy and vastly different
attitudes towards work/life balance, motivation in the work place, etc.
How are various stakeholders responding to these challenges? What are the implications
of the impending changes for the government, the military, the medical profession,
and different types of business organizations? Join us for a night of networking
and stimulating discussion as we attempt to define the new workforce landscape.
