Managing Today’s Complex, Multigenerational Workforce

We are currently at an interesting point in history, one where five generations of employees are working side by side. With people living and working longer, organisations are being challenged to manage the different needs and expectations of this complex and diverse employee mix. A workforce made up of everyone from recent graduates to experienced employees working past the typical retirement age presents a unique challenge for managers who understand how work styles and perspectives can vary by generation.

Clever organisations will look for solutions that allow them to manage the strengths, weaknesses, needs, and personalities of all employees, no matter which generation they are a part of, to elicit the best performance and results.
