One of the biggest challenges faced by family businesses today is the generational divide – how to keep your business running smoothly and successfully when generations work side-by-side or begin the succession process. How do you keep family and work balance? What is the influence on business structures and policies? What role does technology play? What does gender have to do with it? Real life family members from different segments for the stone industry will share their experiences and encourage you to share yours in this interactive town hall discussion.
• Describe the effects on family and work balance as a result of multi-generations in a family business.
• Identify how the various generations influence business structures, policies and technology within their businesses.
