Don’t Throw Out The Old For The New
In a recent free HR webinar, Zap The Gap! Keeping Millennials & Other Generations Engaged I discuss the various ways to engaged all generations in the workforce. In this recording, I discuss how there is a lot of buzz surrounding the millennial generation (people born after 1980.) It is true; the millennials are a force with which to reckon. Many millennials value digital communication over face-to-face communication; believe social media is more important than salary, and they want their managers to listen to their opinions and help them implement new ideas. The millennial generation already currently represents the majority of the US workforce. It behooves human resources professional to pay attention to the different expectations young people are bringing into the workforce.
However, sometimes in the rush to implement new ideas to make the emerging workforce happy, we forget that currently we have experienced baby boomers and Gen Xers that not only have a lot to offer but, in some cases built the company from the ground up. As human resources professionals, it is vital to look for ways to incorporate all the generations and create a truly generationally diverse workforce. From reverse mentoring, shadowing, job sharing and informal mentoring sessions, human resources leaders can assist everyone to appreciate the span of all the generations, not just the idiosyncrasies of one generation.
Our free HR webinar titled Zap The Gap! Keeping Millennials & Other Generations Engaged discusses the differences between millennials and other generations, as well as ways to keep them interested at work.
