Series 1, Episode 6

How Boomers and Millennials can work better together

The Full Picture | Colt Technology Services

There are so many stereotypes about the different generations – that Millennials spend too much money on avocado toast or that Baby Boomers are out of touch – but what happens when members of different generations are all under one roof? In this episode, we look at getting the best out of a multigenerational workforce and how to harness the power of each generation. Further speaker details below.

About the Full Picture

The Full Picture is a podcast from Colt Technology Services combining individual stories and expert opinions to make sense of the world around us. We’re excited to cover new ground this series, such as the trans experience of the workplace, modern masculinity and coming out at work.

Giving every voice a platform to be heard and building an environment where our people feel comfortable bringing their whole selves to work is a core focus for our business. Producing this podcast is our way of taking one meaningful step towards that, through education, communication and listening.

The Full Picture blends personal stories from our Colties, their own experiences and unique perspectives, along with the views and insights from experts within our industry and beyond. Episodes will focus in on topics that mean something to our people and the workforces of other organisations such as mental health, neurodiversity in tech, changing conversations about race, to name a few.
