The multiple generation workplace gets a sitcom
When we watched a TV commercial for a new show and heard the tagline “Man vs. Millennial,” we knew CBS had caught our attention.
The Great Indoors is a new show coming out October 27 that pokes fun at the challenges and opportunities of the multiple generation workplace Millennials, Gen X, and Baby Boomers. (Disclaimer: We didn’t write the show and we have only seen the two previews below.)
In the 4 minutes clip below, a human resource manager makes the statement: “We offer an entire class on how to deal with them (Millennials)!” Since VPI Strategies offers a popular multiple generation workplace training, it’s nice to see this topic is getting some prime time attention!
VPI Strategies is passionate about helping organizations understand the multiple generation workplace. We teach proven ways to leverage generational similarities and differences to accomplish goals more effectively. We will be watching and invite you to let us know what you think.
