From Boomers to Gen Z, radios to the internet, in-person to virtual, managing today's workforce can be a challenge. With seasoned professionals retiring from the workforce and people entering the workforce who don't know what procurement is, the need to understand that managing personnel must adapt is important. Learning how to successfully manage a multi-generational workforce can take you to the next level.
