There are currently five generations in the workforce. Only a few short years ago, employers who were expecting to be faced with mass retirements are now looking at accommodating workers who cannot afford to retire or are simply healthy and happy enough they'd like to stay at work. 

Our comprehensive Generation Gap Course examines the generation gap's history and reality, primarily for recruiters and succession planning.

5. Transgender Employees - Creating an Inclusive Work Community: Learn The Importance And Elements Of Safe Inclusive Workspaces For Transgender Persons

A safe, inclusive workplace in many jurisdictions is not just the law; it is a goal of every employee and company that values the contributions, well-being, and productivity of everyone in the organization. In society today, individuals are of many personal communities. In addition to heterosexual or ‘straight’ there is also LGBTQ2 – Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and 2, for two-spirited: an aboriginal concept of two sexualities within one body. ‘Trans’, however, refers to gender identity, whereas the other terms describe sexual orientation. The importance of understanding terms of identification is critical to creating and maintain a safe workplace.

3. Closing the Generation Gaps in the Workplace: Learn How to Close the Gap in the Workplace

Break those barriers and dispel common misconceptions about the generation gap in the workplace! Our Generation Gap Course will discuss how most people, no matter their age, want the same thing from their workplace; to do meaningful work and be recognized for it. After all, age is just a number.

There are currently five generations in the workforce. Only a few short years ago, employers who were expecting to be faced with mass retirements are now looking at accommodating workers who cannot afford to retire or are simply healthy and happy enough they'd like to stay at work. 

Our comprehensive Generation Gap Course examines the generation gap's history and reality, primarily for recruiters and succession planning. We will explore whether defining the actual limits of each generation is most important or whether people's merits within the context of employment is the bigger issue. The course will explore problems, solutions, and strategies to help overcome issues related to the generation gap.

At Courses For Success, our training programs have been carefully developed by leading professionals and validated by industry experts to guarantee you are getting the most up-to-date experience. By enrolling in this course, you can be confident you are getting the best education possible.

After you complete this Generation Gap course, you will be able to:

  • Identify where the generation gap issue surfaces, and the impact it has on the modern workforce.
  • Describe and apply language that is specific to each generation currently in the workplace.
  • Explore organization strategies that overcome gap issues.
  • Evaluate the need and effectiveness of recruiting, retention, and succession plans in context of the generation gap.

5. Transgender Employees - Creating an Inclusive Work Community: Learn The Importance And Elements Of Safe Inclusive Workspaces For Transgender Persons

A safe, inclusive workplace in many jurisdictions is not just the law; it is a goal of every employee and company that values the contributions, well-being, and productivity of everyone in the organization. In society today, individuals are of many personal communities. In addition to heterosexual or ‘straight’ there is also LGBTQ2 – Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and 2, for two-spirited: an aboriginal concept of two sexualities within one body. ‘Trans’, however, refers to gender identity, whereas the other terms describe sexual orientation. The importance of understanding terms of identification is critical to creating and maintain a safe workplace.

Transgender Employees: Creating an Inclusive Community is a course to introduce the importance and elements of safe inclusive workspaces for transgender persons – those identifying as one gender but born into the body of the opposing gender. This course will offer an introduction to terminology, elements, policies, and resources to build and sustain a safe, inclusive environment for transgender employees and increase the comfort level and productivity off all in your organization.
