[E Dm] Ha Tch Leadership In Workforce

On behalf of HaTCH, Icicle Group, Wholistic Coachsulting, WHub and WeWork, we are delighted to invite you to our upcoming event “Leadership in the Multi-generational Workforce”.

We are living in an interesting era where a workplace can have employees of different generations working alongside each other. A typical organization today will have employees spanning across four generations - Baby Boomers, Gen X, Millennials and Gen Z. Some businesses even have 5 generations, including Veterans working in one office. As such, one of the biggest challenges leaders face today is navigating through the differences between these generations and finding the path to success. 

In this event, we are privileged to have a panel of 4 individuals who have taken a front row seat in witnessing and experiencing this shift in our office culture. Please join us at our upcoming event with our distinguished guest speakers: Justin Leung, Director - HaTCH, Bonnie Chan Woo, CEO - Icicle Group and Co-Founder - Studio SV, Fyiona Yong, Founder - Wholistic Coachsulting Ltd,and Karena Belin, Co-Founder - WHub, who will share their insights on:

  • A leader’s role in a multi-generational workplace
  • What motivates and drives the different generations?
  • How do leaders and employee deal with change and transformation?
  • How has the role of recruitment change in today’s organizations?
