Managing good talent has never been easy, but the rapid pace of change is going to make this even more challenging. Is your organization ready for it? Consider a few changes that employers of the future will have to deal with: 1) Five highly diverse generations working in organizations side-by-side with vastly different values, beliefs, and technology skill sets; 2) Growing international business with needs for cross cultural communication and business etiquette; 3) A new e-economy bringing with it a vastly different way of doing business; 4) The need to build innovation into the culture to develop a competitive advantage; and 5) Building a sustainable and green workplace will be essential to attracting the future workforce. Many of these trends can already be seen, and others are newly emerging. But all will have a dramatic impact on the manager of the future. Learn what these new trends will mean for your company, and what you can do now to prepare for them.
