What's Next in Career Paths?
Changing demographics are dramatically affecting our profession:
- Baby boomers are retiring at an unprecedented rate, elevating succession planning to a crucial strategic objective.
- GenX’ers are being called upon to assume increasing levels of leadership, making the development of the next generation of leaders vital to ongoing firm success.
- In 2016, Millennials became the largest professional demographic, ushering in new challenges to how firms approach attracting and retaining talent.
Responding to the aspirations and demands of each generation is daunting. Perhaps the greatest challenge is integrating the diverse interests, perspectives, needs and desires of all practicing generations into cohesive and unified practice management strategies.
Practice Challenges, Insights & Resources
AIA Wisconsin leaders recognize the need to address these practice challenges. This year’s Fall Workshop theme of professional and firm development will be explored within the contexts of constantly evolving business models and individual career paths. Workshop participants will be called upon to relate your personal experiences and to assess how to successfully navigate attracting and retaining talent, develop the next generation of leaders, and prepare a succession plan amidst a rapidly changing environment.
I hope you join me at the full-day workshop tackling today's issues.
