"Generation Y to Z – our future" with Prof. Dr. Sita Mazumder
Generations: Challenge or Opportunity?
We work in a time of unprecedented generational change and challenge. For the first time in history there are now five generations in the workforce and also in the marketplace. This creates opportunities, yet companies are highly challenged with generations management.
Strategies that work for one generation can be a complete turn-off for others. And even when a strategy works for multiple generations there is still a way to go for generations to properly work together. This divide is a costly challenge, but it can be a breakthrough opportunity. It all depends on how you and your leaders respond now. Once generations learn from each other and teach one another the highest value added is unlocked.
"We need to remember across generations that there is as much to learn as there is to teach."
Gloria Marie Steinem, American feminist, journalist, and social political activist.
In order to unlock the potential we need to understand the different generational differences, their characteristics and therefore today’s workforce.
