Reframing Generational Stereotypes in Manufacturing with Rachele Focardi Manufacturing Happy Hour

    • Technology

Rachele Focardi is a generational diversity expert, international speaker, author, and Founder of XYZ at Work. We've talked about attracting the next generation to the workforce on this show quite a bit, but today is probably our most holistic conversation to date when it comes to all of the generations in the workforce and the wonderful things each generation brings to the table.
In this episode, Rachele explains why generational diversity is such a key issue across industries and how it has a unique place in the manufacturing industry. She explores how the pandemic leveled the playing field for each generation and spurred collaboration in and out of the workplace.
For the stats fans out there, Rachele offers some pretty juicy stats on this phenomenon. She also gives us a sneak peek at a few of the topics she’s going to discuss at the upcoming Automate Show in Detroit (without giving too much away).
In this episode, find out:
What a Future of Work Strategist does
Insights from Rachele’s educational and career background
What inspired Rachele to focus on generational diversity
Why generational diversity is so vital in the present-day
What each generation brings to the table
Why people perceive multigenerational collaboration negatively
The role of the pandemic in opening people’s minds to generational diversity
Rachele’s take on diversity in the manufacturing industry
What Gen X brings to the table

“Hiring people and then losing them because your environment is not multi-generationally harmonious is a reality employers have to deal with.”
“Though generational diversity is diversity, it does make us stronger.”
