QNET Presents: Dr. Linda Duxbury

A noted pioneer in the field of organizational health

 

      

       QNET is pleased to host two special sessions

       with Dr. Linda Duxbury, Canada's most

       accomplished researcher, writer and speaker

       on work-life balance. Attend one or both

         sessions, and leave inspired to be the catalyst

         for change in your workplace.

 

Session 1:

Something's Gotta Give

Are you in the break-neck race to a never-ending finish line? Do you find the more you do, the more there is to be done?

Technology that was supposed to make our work lives more manageable has created unreasonable demands for response times and we are "on call 24/7" with no downtime. Sick days and turnover are increasing, morale is often low, boomers are retiring and a generation of younger workers demand a "new set of rules". This can lead to serous productivity, morale and health issues in the workplace.

In this presentation, Dr. Duxbury will address what she sees as the key barriers between an employer's policy and practice - workload, culture, caregiving - and lack of flexibility to deal with it.

If your organization is serious about addressing these issues and wants direction on how to move forward, don't miss this presentation which includes Dr. Duxbury's latest research from the 2012 National Work Life Study.

 

Session 2:

Managing a Changing Workforce

Now more than ever, we need to understand how to deal with generational differences. In Canada, there are four generations in the workforce at the same time; each has different attitudes and values with respect to work and life.

The workplace of today is not the same as the workplace of even one generation before - let alone three. Managers need to understand key generational differences in order to attract, motivate and retain good employees in an increasingly tight labour market.

Dr. Duxbury's talk will address formative influences shaping the generations and possible sources of generational conflict within the workforce. She will give managers and leaders information on how to adapt to meet the needs of these different groups of employees.
