Minding the Generation Gap

Minding the Generation Gap
Reimagining Work
September 16, 2022

In recent years, our idea of traditional office culture has been turned on its head by the pandemic, the rise of remote work, the explosion of the gig economy, real estate fluctuations and much more. Today's offices are a mix of work locations, communication styles and types of employment. Employees are at different stages of their lives and careers, and that diversity amplifies the complexity of our workforce. To delve into today's multi-generational office culture and how managers and employees are navigating it, host Brian Lowery speaks with former HR director Edwin Ochoa, who supported a multi-generational staff during a company merger as well as the pandemic and the switch to remote work. We also meet Craig Hughes, a political consultant managing the different expectations and approaches of older candidates and younger campaign workers. And we'll hear from Amy Chyan, a producer on this show who's been working out how to shift from having a boss earlier in her career, to being her own boss in this new age of work.
