Room: Place du Canada
Luncheon Panel: Experienced workforce and younger generations – are their aspirations that different?
The need to renew the industry’s workforce is widely agreed upon as one of the key challenges of the forest industry today. Considering the fact that we have about four generations in the workforce at the same time, each with distinct values, aspirations, habits, shaping events and outlook for the future, can we harness and benefit from the opportunities presented by this level of diversity?
This panel will look at how the industry can better take advantage of the combined experiences of the different generations of its workforce while providing insight on attracting and retaining the newer generations.
The panel will be moderated by Mr. Karl Moore Ph.D., McGill University, a decorated Management professor, Author and Interviewer.
