Multigenerational Workforce

Wayne, 61, who worries about not having enough saved retirement has postponed retirement. Lindsay, 23, just finished her MBA and is the newly-hired Project Manager coordinating Wayne’s work. Lynn, 44, supervises both Wayne and Lindsay.

Today, this scenario of a muligenerational workforce is more the norm than the exception. So how do Boomers, Gen Xers and Millennials work together toward common goals? 

For the first time in modern history, workplace demographics now span four generations. Older workers are staying in the workforce longer or are re-entering the workforce after retirement due to economic hardships.

The Millennials, working side by side with their parents’ and  their grandparents’ generations, often view the Millennials as being out of touch with reality, wanting promotions quickly and only thinking about, “What’s in it for me?”  Millennials think differently, act differently and are motivated by actions older generations simply don’t understand.

Herein lies the source of multigenerational workforce conflict and the reason organizations need to learn the skills and tools to adapt to the ever changing landscape of the workplace.

The GU Professional Institute has developed original content, based on research and business professionals’ expertise, to offer companies of the future training for success within a multigenerational workforce.
