"The topic of the different generations in the workforce is a popular topic in today’s office environment,” Bojic said. "We learned from the panelists that their viewpoints on various topics were more alike than different. All generations are looking for flexibility, success and being fulfilled in their jobs.”

Sarah Schneider, customer sales executive, Walgreens for Hershey, said the event "surpassed everyone’s expectations. We heard nothing but positive feedback. Several people stated they wished the panel discussion could have been longer!”

"It was great to connect as a team and network with someone new,” added Jon Davis, team leader, Walgreens for Hershey. "The panel provided an open forum for discussion and the attendees, both males and females across various organizations, were engaged in the conversation. Based on the positive feedback, we look forward to hosting another panel event soon.”
