XYBOOM Conference 2013


The XYBOOM Intergenerational Conference is a unique one-day event in Vancouver held on May 28th. With the theme “From Workplace Tension to Intergenerational Collaboration”, participants will walk away with strategies and insights for solving and managing intergenerational workplace tensions. Panelist members include innovators and change makers like Carol Chiang, Partner at KPMG, James Palmer, VP Marketing & Sales at Great Little Box Co., Jane Terepocki, HR Administrator Recruitment & Training at Mountain Equipment Co-op, Val Litwin, VP Franchise Operations at Nurse Next Door, and more.

You’ll get to meet like-minded individuals who are facing similar issues with intergenerational tensions in the workplace and are currently seeking solutions. We have curated a list of case study topics with the intent of addressing some of the most pressing and pertinent generational issues affecting diverse workplaces today, as well as the career trajectories/decisions of each generation in the workplace today. These issues have been categorized into 5 themes– Attraction, Recruitment & Hiring, Engaging & Retaining, Succession Planning and Transitioning. The conference day will all be documented by various mediums including note-taking, graphic recording, photography and videography to create the ultimate takeaway package that all participants will be able to apply to their own individual workplaces.
