Ryan Jenkins | Top Generational Speaker

62% of Generation Z anticipate challenges working with Baby Boomers and Generation X, and only 5% anticipate challenges working with Millennials. To ensure a cohesive cross-generational team, leaders need to understand and integrate Millennials and Generation Z.


Today Millennials are the largest generation in the workforce and Gen Z are the fastest-growing generation in the workforce. While Millennials and Gen Z bring valuable skills, insights, and ambition to the workplace, they are often a source of tension among experienced workers and managers.

Ryan Jenkins shares relevant data and innovative insights to better understand what drives Millennial and Gen Z employee performance.


A diverse workforce (especially generationally) is better equipped to respond to today’s high-flux and disruption-prone marketplace. Leaders who create an inclusive culture for their teams see performance increased by 17%, decision-making quality boosted by 20%, and collaboration enhanced by 29%.


Today’s leading organizations and forward-thinking leaders understand that diversity and inclusion is much more than a buzzword, it’s a business strategy capable of driving performance, enhancing innovation, and engaging and retaining employees. Like-minded teams maintain; diverse teams innovate.
