Bridging the Generation Gap

Bridging the Generation Gap

Virtual training NOW available!

people_around_deskIn today’s workplace, you will find, for the first time in American history, that we have five generations working side-by-side.  This is due to advances in medicine, which have allowed us to live longer and in turn allow older generations to postpone retirement.  The significance is in terms of types of workplace behaviors, what motivates employee engagement, and the tools and practices they need to interact.  This mixed, multi-generational environment has created a new diversity challenge for organizations everywhere.

Just as gender and ethnic diversity can lead to conflict and miscommunication, so can generational diversity.  Dealing with diversity in the workplace means understanding and relating effectively with people who are different than you.  The ability for a diverse group of people to build strength and unity through their diversity is the power that propels organizations into new dimensions of performance.
