The Pew Research Center estimates that right now there are more Millennials than Baby Boomers in America.  By 2030 Millennials and Gen Zs will make up 75% of the workforce.  A Gallup Poll found that 21% of Millennials had changed jobs within the last year, that’s three times more than other generations.   On top of this demographic shift, technological innovation is increasing exponentially. 

The American workforce is racing toward a major generational transformation within the next ten years.  Will the emerging generations demand new ways of doing business and managing employees?  How will the generations impact the courts?  What can court administrators do today to prepare for this sea change?  Tina Mattison, Stacy Worby, and Paulina Pasquarelli talk about the up-and-coming generations as they flex their social and economic muscle.  What it mean to management and the workplace.

This is a compelling podcast episode for listeners interested in generational differences, managing the generations, courts, and court administration.
