Managing expectations of a multi-generational workforce

How do we reduce the complexity to unleash the maximal potential of a multi-generational workforce? What is our experience to understand the differences and common expectations across generations? We share with you our recommendations, actions, and lessons learned to open further horizons for discussion and exchange.
