Managing the Multigenerational Workplace: Answers for Managers and Trainers
Bartley, Sharon J.; Ladd, Patrick G.; Morris, M. Lane
CUPA-HR Journal, v58 n1 p28-34 Spr-Sum 2007
"How do I get through to this new gang of Millennial workers?" "Why can't my boss just lighten up?" Employees and managers ask questions such as these from all sides of the generational battle lines forming in workplaces today. The emerging trend of what we have called "generational diversity" in the workplace is a growing challenge for managers and learning officers. Veterans, Baby Boomers, Generation Xers and Millennials bring diverse morals, values, opinions and work ethics into their work environments. This article defines each of the four generations and examines the issues created by and associated with managing and training the multigenerational workforce.
