Diversity can mean more than just varied backgrounds. Sometimes this word can include people of various age groups and experience levels. Each generation works differently and this can often lead to conflicts in the work place. It is important to emphasize the similarities between age groups and apply similar performance metrics. Frequent feedback is critical to the success of all employees, regardless of age. Business will need to adapt to the blending of older and younger workers.
- People born in different generations can still interact positively together in the workplace.
- It is important to see which similarities people from different generations have in the workplace, and then use team-building tools to bring them together.
- Polls show that many workforce participants are not actively engaged, so it is critical to work on motivating your workforce.
