AIHR Learning Bite: Why Embrace Workplace Generational Differences

Roughly speaking, there are five generations in the workplace today: The Silent Generation, the Baby Boomers, Gen X, Gen Y, and Gen Z. 

The mere fact that each cohort was born in a different political and economic climate, each with its own challenges and technological developments, implies that they look at the workplace through a different lens. The fact that each generation has its own unique skillset, beliefs and competencies to bring to the table means that workforce diversity can:

  • Drive innovation;
  • Generate skill diversity;
  • Generate multiple perspectives;
  • Improve decision-making processes;
  • Future-proof workforce;
  • Offer a competitive advantage;
  • Lead to enhanced overall organizational performance and productivity.
