Jay McChord to Address SCORE Chapter Chair Orientation

Washington, D.C.—Jay McChord, CEO and president of Workplace Buzz, LLC of Lexington, Ky., will be a featured speaker at the SCORE Association’s national Chapter Chair Orientation August 19-21 in Kansas City, Mo. McChord is a noted expert on generational issues in the workplace. He consults nationwide on working with Generation X.

McChord founded Workplace Buzz in the fall of 2000 to help organizations improve their performance through better internal communication, particularly through learning about the distinctive styles and traits of different generations. He will talk to SCORE chapter chairs about age group differences in the workplace, with an emphasis on Generation X.

“Jay McChord represents the dynamic young entrepreneur of today. His experience and perspective on Generation X provide a model on how to connect across generations,” says SCORE CEO Kenneth Yancey. “We are very fortunate to have Jay share his knowledge as part of our national orientation program.”

Prior to founding Workplace Buzz, McChord spent 10 years in the financial services industry. In that time, he recognized that older executives often had difficulty managing some of their younger employees. He started Workplace Buzz to help businesses contend with this problem. His firm also instructs organizations on how to get the most out of their intellectual capital. In addition, Workplace Buzz provides a forum for people to discuss their ideas on how to improve their business practices.
