Today’s workforce is comprised of four different generations for the first time. These four generations know as the Traditionalists, Baby Boomers, Gen Xers, and Gen Yers each has its own unique central values, preferences, and motivators. As a result, new and more flexible management approaches designed to recognize, understand, and take advantage of members of different generations working side by side and leveraging the talents of all generations is required. For example, as the last of the Traditionalist generation and increasing members of the Baby Boomer generation retire, organizations across industries face the daunting task of replacing these skilled, experienced contributors and transferring their institutional knowledge to younger generation workers. In addition, due to the smaller numbers of Gen Xers, The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that over the next two decades there will be a 24% gap between available workers and available jobs worldwide. This means that competition for recruiting and retaining skilled employees will heat up considerably. Gen Yers entering the workplace for the first time have different expectations related to work and career that have not been experienced before by employers and their management. This requires innovative and creative approaches for recruiting, motivating, and retaining younger workers.
This learning session explores the myriad challenges and issues associated with having different generations working side by side in the workplace. Through a combination of brief lecturettes, interactive small group learning activities, and scenario analyses, participants will increase their awareness and understanding of the key challenges and opportunities that such generational diversity presents and develop action strategies for addressing these challenges and leveraging the opportunities in their work area. Effective communication, collaborating, and motivation techniques for use with members of the different generations will be examined and research based leading practices will be discussed.
