Ac001 Nextgen Facebook Tagline 2

As part of its commitment to helping businesses prosper, the Australian Chamber is launching a new conference series called NextGen in Business, bringing together top global and local thinkers to share their skills and experiences.

For the first time in history five generations will be working together. The NextGen series leverages lessons from global innovators like Netflix, Envato and Atlassian as businesses learn to meld the skills and expectations of five distinct generations in their workplaces.

Understanding how Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, Baby Boomers and Traditionalists think differently and creating a workplace environment where everyone can thrive is critical for continued growth and success.

NextGen can help you ace this test in your business.

Businesses that thrive in the future will do so by building on the three pillars of leadership, diversity and flexibility in order to attract and retain the best people and maximise their productivity.

Attendees will be armed with the knowledge to establish an inclusive, cohesive and effective workforce within their business, with guidance on:

  • The art of managing a multigenerational workforce;
  • Leading through uncertainty;
  • Meeting the market to manage recruitment and retention;
  • Diversity and inclusion as a driver for innovation, creativity and productivity;
  • Assimilating a flexible and diverse workforce
