Embracing Multigeneration Teams in Audit
Embracing Multigeneration Teams in Audit. CPE: 1
We currently have 5 distinct generations in the workplace, including in internal audit and compliance departments. A recent Deloitte survey predicts that Millennials will make up 75% of the global workforce in the next few years, which includes our audit staff. From a management perspective, we need to blend the realities of the work we do with the challenges of working in a multigenerational staff.
This presentation will highlight the challenges faced by audit management when incorporating multiple generations into a department, and focus on approaches we can take to ensure each group has a successful integration into our multigenerational team.
• Establish a baseline understanding of differing generational skills
• Identify the skill gaps and training needs for generational inclusion
• List changes that may be necessary within our departments.
