Keep Peace & Keep Learning In a Multi-Generational Workforce
In this e-book, we explore the multi-generation workforce from a very specific perspective. How do we develop and deliver effective and engaging employee training programs to employees with such diverse expectations, needs and preferences? It's not easy, but it can be done.
Here is a brief exerpt from the e-book:
Designing and delivering effective training can be a challenge even when we have a clearly defined and narrow audience for our content or program. But what happens when we have to train teams, groups or departments with a wide mix of generations among the targeted employees?
How do HR professionals, their leadership and other business leaders keep the peace and keep learning in a multi-generational workforce?
We’ve never had a workplace with so much generational diversity before. For most of the last century, people moved through their career in a linear fashion, with important milestones largely marked by time or seniority. Retirement age used to be 65, and that was it. You “paid your dues” before promotions. But today’s workforce looks and feels different.
There are many explanations for the current demographics ranging from improved health and longevity to the financial market meltdown of 2008 which forced many people (a large number of Baby Boomers) to postpone retirement for financial reasons. We can’t control why so many generations are working side-by-side. So – we have no choice but to find ways for people with very different life experiences based upon age to work well together. As employee development, training or HR professionals, we likewise don’t have a choice. So how do HR professionals, their leadership and other business leaders keep the peace in the multigenerational workforce? We have to design, build and deliver employee training that meets the needs of a very diverse workforce.
