Public Workshops: English with English Workbook
In-house Workshops: 社內培訓可選用英語授課

Introduction

Learn how you could revitalise your older work force through a reverse mentoring program where generation X and baby boomers are encouraged to learn from the younger generation Y and millennials.  Through the mentoring program, the senior work force is encouraged to learn and to stay relevant in today’s internet and social media world. You will learn to design successful mentoring programs that encourage the different generations to cross-learn and appreciate each other’s strengths better; thus fostering collaboration across an inter-generational workforce. And by getting the different generations to mentor each other, you will have a happier and synergised team that constantly yields higher business results.
