Generational Diversity Presentation: Generation "THEM"
Generational Diversity is one of the biggest issues facing the American workforce. However, it's not just businesses experiencing friction between the generations, churches and schools are struggling with how to bridge the gap as well.
genWHY Communication founder, Kristin Scroggin, began conducting research on Millennials, GenX, and Baby Boomers in 2013. Since then she has been traveling around the United States helping companies better understand their employees and themselves.
While talking to her father, David Thompson, about all her findings, he brought up the importance of this information to churches and schools. Together they began building presentations that are information-packed! Couple this great content with David's engaging and hilarious style and you have a presentation your entire organization will love to hear.
Here are just a few things we discuss in our presentation that will blow your mind!
47% of the American population is under 33 years of age
The Millennial generation will be the largest eligible work-group until 2030

“Not on MY Watch” - Church focused presentation synopsis
The “Not on My Watch” presentation examines the differences between what each generation wants and needs from their church experience. Fewer Millennials than ever before are attending churches and attendees seem baffled at why things are “different” than ever before. David talks about the obligation we have as a part of the Great Commission to make disciples and grow them in the “BIG C” church. Learn more at www.livetheredletters.com
