Press Release (BlakelyCompany.com)

Better Business Bureau of Southern Colorado (BBB) and the University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS) College of Business will offer a four-part, interactive, professional development seminar series, beginning February 1 through June 21, 2018, titled “Multi-Generational Professional Series.” 

This series marks the second year of collaboration between BBB and UCCS College of Business to address the human resources and marketing needs of small-business owners and professionals.
 
Integrating theory, research and evidence-based practices, attendees will learn concepts and strategies impacting a multi-generational workforce. The intended audience includes organizations and professionals of all generations.
 
Millennials comprise 26 percent of the population in Colorado Springs, higher than the national average, and the city remains among the top in the nation for attracting millennials. Currently one-third of the workforce, millennials will make up half of the workforce by 2020.
 
The four tracks within the series are tailored for human resources, management and marketing professionals, and Track 3 is open to all, but designed for millennials.
 
The community is encouraged to attend the Seminar Series Information Session and Kick-Off Event on January 18, 2018, to learn more on the Series. It will be held at The Warehouse Restaurant from 4:30-6:00 p.m.
 
“We’re excited to again be offering this professional development series in conjunction with UCCS,” said Jonathan Liebert, CEO and executive director of BBB of Southern Colorado. “Learning to motivate, support and interact with employees from multiple generations is vital for business owners and other professionals.”
 
Eric Olson, interim dean, UCCS College of Business added, “We are excited to partner with the BBB of Southern Colorado to offer this timely and important professional development opportunity. Marshalling the talents of an increasingly diverse workforce will be critical in the coming decade, and the College of Business is pleased to be a resource for these skills.”
