Intergenerational Challenges and Opportunities in the Workforce

An evolving issue facing most, if not all, organizations are the challenges and opportunities created by an intergenerational workforce. Take a look around your company or organizational and likely your workforce will be composed of Baby Boomers, Gen Xers, and members of Gen Y (also referred to as Nexters). Intergenerational management issues, coupled with the projected talent shortage created by Baby Boomer's upcoming retirement, will continue to evolve as a critical issue for organizations globally.

Drawing on the dynamic strengths and diversity of these different groups have implications for many areas of management including training, employe engagement, leadership, HR, as well as for business owners in terms of marketing, culture, hiring etc. Over the next few weeks, I will be looking at the different generational cohorts in this blog, along with some of my thoughts on implimcations for training, engagement, leadership and HR. I hope that you will stay posted and I am looking forward to your comments as well.

Stay Tuned,
