What’s required to work with five generations of employees?
As the workforce continues to evolve, so does the concept of workforce diversity. For the first time in history, there are five generations working side-by-side. This shift has created new challenges and opportunities for employers.
It's no surprise that different generations have distinct opinions and approaches – just take a look at the age ranges! Traditionalists are those 75 and above, Baby Boomers are 54-74, Generation X are 39-53, Millennials are 24-38 and Generation Z are those 23 and younger. Communication barriers, and different strategies for dealing with life's challenges, are only natural when you consider the ages of each group.
If you're not keeping up with the changing workforce, you're falling behind. Don't let your company be left in the past – make sure you're prepared for the future by understanding the five generations in your workplace.
We have the solutions that give young and old the chance to come together, learn and grow. With the proper guidance, work turns into an environment where everyone has the chance to look within and become self-aware. This encourages people to foster their own motivations and gain a real sense of purpose, leading to a greater feeling of loyalty and satisfaction with the workplace.
We lay the foundation for not only effective communication, but an increased level of relatability that will proactively address issues such as race, political unrest, and lifestyle preferences. Gen Z and millennials stay loyal to company cultures that embrace inclusivity and awareness skills, and according to Forbes, this figure is at 40%. Meanwhile, less than 30% of baby boomers share this sentiment. In addition, many desire hybrid working options and competitive pay with good benefits. We specialize in resolving miscommunication, mental health awareness, and productivity issues. The challenge rarely lies in what leadership originally perceives it to be; employees are usually very informed about what is going on behind the scenes. Our team is able to quickly analyze the core problem and provide quick and effective resolutions. Companies often see an immediate improvement in their staff’s attitudes and performance with our assistance.
