Recruiting, Retaining & Inspiring A Multigenerational Workforce
For the first time in history, the American workforce comprises four unique generations – Traditionalists (born 1925-1945), Baby Boomers (Born 1946-1964), Generation X (Born 1965-1979) and Millennials (Born 1980-2000).
Because of this huge age range and the many things that diversify one from another, it’s key for business leaders to understand the differences that separate each generation – such as challenges, strengths, work styles and ambitions – to bring everyone together.
WHAT DEFINES A GENERATION?
Within each generation, each person is different. Each person has different parents, different cultures, different home towns, and many different life experiences that have shaped who they are today. They do, however, share one thing in common. Key events and phenomena that have occurred within their lifetime that have defined their lives.
The greatest example can be found with Traditionalists. Being raised during the Great Depression, World War II and the New Deal taught this generation to be frugal, hardworking and willing to sacrifice. Decades passed, and Millennials came of age surrounded by computers and technology. Their lives and upbringings were undeniably influenced by the results of 9/11.
Each generation is shaped by environmental factors. These events and experiences have changed the way each generation works, and understanding these is the key to success.
