It's become common knowledge that Baby Boomers, Gen X & Gen Y, each have a different work style and life/work expectations. Join the CIO committee Wednesday, Oct 22nd at the Governor Hotel to learn how other CIO's and IT managers are dealing with the generational differences in hiring, retaining, and motivating these different groups of people.

Hear from Greg Kulander, local expert on the differences between the baby boomers, Generation X and Gen Y. Iris Sasaki, HR professional, who has more than 20 years of experience teaching and training managers how to hire and how to bridge the gap between generations, and Tim Kurlio, IT Manager for Multnomah County who prides himself on creating teams that function well together despite their innate differences. All moderated by Lance Kidd, CIO for Halton Company.

Iris Sasaki has been in the HR world for over twenty years beginning as a recruiter for Tektronix and retiring as an HR executive. Iris has managed her own HR consulting business since 2001.

Among the organization at which Iris has been a guest speaker are included the American Electronics Association, the law firm of Ater Wynne, Oregon Employment Division, and a guest lecturer from Oregon Graduate Institute. She is active as an "Expert in Residence" at the Open Technology Business Center and a mentor for the business concepts program of the Oregon Entrepreneurs Network. Iris created two training modules which were adopted by the Equal Opportunity Commission. Iris' post graduate studies have focused on communication. She has published two articles on the web, the first with Business and Law Online, and the second with HR.com.

Greg Kulander, Ph.D. is Director of Student and Educator Services at the Business Education Compact. Dr. Kulander has extensive international experience and has researched and practiced cross-cultural communication for 25 years. Recently he has begun applying this cross-cultural expertise to the issues facing cross-generational communication. (And this interest has, of course, little to do with his having three teenagers!)

Tim Kurlio, IT Manager, Multnomah County Tim Kurilo has worked in the technical field for 28 years. He is currently the Technical Services Manager at Multnomah County, Oregon. As a computer technician in the boom of the 90's, Tim realized how important it was to promote new opportunities yet retain experienced staff. He decided to join the ranks of management so he could help create an environment that nurtures the implementation and administration of new technologies, yet retains a quality of life for the staff.

Tim and his wife, Betsy, have successfully "blended" their very diverse families of eight children and 9 grandchildren. Learning the core values and motivations of each individual is just as important in the workplace as it is at home. One of Tim's favorite sayings is: "Technology is the easy part, once you get the team on the same page, the work just gets done".
