Engaging A Multi-Generational Workforce to Decarbonize the Future

This session will explore the challenges to, opportunities for, and results from accelerating cross-generational engagement in the pursuit of decarbonization.

After identifying some major generational differences, we will explore how BR+A accommodates these differences in our work.  We will look at communication styles, in-office engagement and remote working, project management, work schedules, and benefit programs. We will also look deeply at strategies related to employee retention, task assignment, and persity and inclusion.

To cap-off the discussion, we will present project successes, including design of a large geothermal installation and the use of advanced modeling software.
