Plan for generational differences in the workplace

Leaders striving for peak productivity recognize the need to optimize the work ethic of the four generations that play vital roles in today's workforce. Success in achieving this goal requires understanding and coordinating generational work styles, while meeting age-specific demands.

From Baby Boomers to Generation Y

In a four-generation workplace, work styles and values can clash, disrupting teamwork and chains of command. In this atmosphere, employers need policies that can ward off conflict and potential risks such as charges of age discrimination. And management must develop cultures, strategies, guidelines, and opportunities that will elicit top performances from all age groups.

  • Reports and survey findings
