Workforce Vibe Podcast Focuses on Generations in Four-Part Series

The City’s Department of Workforce Development, housed at the Missouri Job Center, has released its latest podcast episodes focusing on the different generations and how each defines work. This four-part series explores the Gen Z, Millennial, Gen X and Boomer generations and how each views their place in today’s workforce.

Workforce Vibe host Sally Payne sat down with a Gen Zer and Millennial to find out how each views their own generation and examine their attitudes about work. “It was really fascinating to have a conversation with the two younger generations and find out what motivates them and what they are passionate about,” said Sally Payne, Director of Workforce Development for the City of Springfield. “We touched on a wide range of topics from working in the gig economy to how companies can create career pathways through training opportunities to retain talent and keep them engaged,” she added.

Workforce Vibe can be accessed on most major podcast platforms including Apple iTunes and Spotify. You may also listen to all Workforce Vibe episodes on under the podcasts section.
