Impact on the Organization
There are four different generations of employees in the workforce today. Common experiences of each generation frequently define their assumptions and perspectives about work. Understanding these experiences and the differences between generations is essential to managing attitudes, expectations and values about work. Learning to communicate to each generation’s needs and values can enhance co-operation and teamwork when everyone is expected to do more with less.
