Eric Chester is a trusted source in the global dialogue on employee engagement, workplace culture and the emerging generation. Since 1986, Eric’s been in the trenches researching, studying, speaking and writing about these topics. He was one of the first authors to spell out the radical differences of the post-Gen X workforce in his 2002 bestseller, Employing Generation Why: Understanding, Managing and Motivating Your New Workforce. Companies discovered that Eric had cracked the code on the emerging generation and sought his advice on how to connect with young employees. He has become one of North America’s most in-demand conference keynote speakers, presenting at more than 60 meetings and conventions each year.
