Bringing Together All Generations at Work
Today the generation Z accounts for the largest number of people joining the workforce next to the millennial generation. Another fact is that people going into retirement over sixty has also gone downs. The human resource department will, therefore, have a task on their hands with a largely diverse workforce. Baby boomers still remain in charge of upper-level management, as much as they have adopted mobile technology their typing skills are not as a sharp. The work is to find the common ground between the generation Z which is tech savvy but socially deficient with the boomers who are socially viable but tech deficient.
Sometimes it is hard to avoid generalization when working with different generations. Taking note of everyone for the generbecomeare becomes difficult. The generation gaps are set aside by the historical experiences more than the age group. During the age of the Baby Boomers, the tech revolutions were the internet and the computer and it was the age of the free love revolution as well. This generation bought tech for their children in the 90s but had no time become savvy. They are associated with attaching lot of value to loyalty in comparison to other values.
The boomer generation became one of the most hardworking generations in memory after the free love revolution. This generation is more hands-on with analog technology and works well with productivity that is visible. Boomers that appear to be uncomfortable with technology can be made productive with a ICR (Intelligent Character Recognition) that converts paper technology into digital one. Telling what a future generation will do in the work place will do can be a little hard to be certain of . The generation Z will be looked at as the anti-social and the connected group but thanks to their parents they have desire for mentorship.
This is the generation that is eager to learn and not take anything for granted . To successfully incorporate the generation Z in the workplace you should provide a mentor and preferably from the generation X or the millennial. They do well at the workplace and will bring in the knowledge that you wish you had some time back. Without the generation X the world would not be as we know it, they have a one of a kind can do attitude that has enabled them to scale the ladder. Generation X is known to be an early adopter of technology despite the fact that they did not grow around it. with millennial generation they happen to be the most understood but at the workplace when given mobility and freedom they will outdo other generations.
