81_Bridging Generational Gaps in the Workforce: How Organizations Can Capture (and Retain) Millennial Talent
Hosted by Dan Collard with special guest Amelie Karam
On this week’s episode of The Healthcare Plus Podcast, host Dan Collard is joined by special guest Amelie Karam, a nationally renowned speaker and consultant focused on bridging generational gaps in the workforce. For the last nine years, Amelie has worked with organizations across a number of industries to teach them about the millennial perspective, debunk stereotypes of millennials, and help bridge generational gaps to support long-term growth and success.
Amelia shares her learnings and key takeaways on:
- What leaders and organizations can do to help younger generations feel a greater sense of belonging
- How organizations can stand out to millennial applicants during the recruiting process
- Why passion is a driving force for employee engagement and retention
- How employees of all ages can be better teammates in a multi-generational workforce
“I’ve spoken to many different industries and it always comes down to the same thing – it’s so important for us to get to know people for more than just their age and more than just their position at your organization.”
About Amelie Karam
After studying at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, Richmond University in London, and finishing her degree in Performance and Film Studies from Loyola University in New Orleans, Amelie Karam recognized that people in her Gen Y age group, known as “Millennials,” view the world differently than do previous generations. The great divide between Baby Boomers, Generation X, and Generation Y piqued Amelie’s interest.
Amelie is passionate about bridging generational gaps. She speaks and consults both nationally and internationally about how organizations can better work together to attract and retain the Millennial generation to ultimately bridge generational gaps.
Through her Millennial perspective and rich research, along with her background in theatre, film, health, and wellness, Amelie brings an entertaining and informative voice to this important and highly sought-after topic of bridging generational gaps.
