  2. Understand how to motivate and communicate with different generations to reduce turnover and increase worker productivity

  3. Decrease inter-organizational conflict while improving employee morale and the overall culture of your workplace

The lunch and learn educational series takes place quarterly at Gwinnett Tech’s Busbee Center and delivers actionable tips and tools of the trade specifically designed to help Georgia Manufacturers grow their business.
