Finding Work/Hiring People! Millenial/GenZ VS Baby Boomers - Who to Hire? Generational Diversity
Show Notes

Special Guest - Kristin Scroggin
 Just because you want to be a NASA engineer, does not mean you can be one!
 There has been a great debate over the last 5 years on the differences in the older generation (Baby Boomers and Generation X) vs the younger generation (Millenials and Generation Z). Work ethics, employment expectations, values in the every day work environment, and work lifestyle expectations.  Today we are going to explore the major generational gaps and the positive and negatives of each
 Kristin Scroggin cant do math, or bake a pie, but she is a GREAT speaker! Kristin has her Masters in Communication Studies, Bachelors in Communication Arts. She was a Communications Lecturer at the University of Alabama in Huntsville for 11 years before starting her own training company, genWHY Communications in 2017.  Her passion is generational diversity and all things soft-skill related. She has spoken at conferences and  to hundreds of organizations across the United States ranging from Fortune 500 companies to tiny non-profits. Obsessed with travel, and desperate to see the world, she and her husband try to keep their heads above water while parenting their four children and any foster children who come their way.
