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. We have a small number of people over sixty going into retirement. The human resource department will, therefore, have a task on their hands with a largely diverse workforce. The baby boomer generation makes up the upper-level management for many organizations, they have done well to adopt mobile technology but they are still yet to master some skills like typing. Its all about evening the scale between the tech-savvy but socially deficient generation Z with the socially fit but tech deficient boomers.
Generalization of generations is common and something that is a bit to avoid . Taking note of everyone for the generbecomeare becomes difficult. It is important to realize that generation has little to do with age but rather the historical experience that. 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. The Baby Boomers bought technology for their children but the thing is they had no time to learn it. Boomers value loyalty compared to any other values.
The boomer generation became one of the most hardworking generations in memory after the free love revolution. The baby boomers will be more motivated with visible productivity, they prefer to work with more hands-on analog technology than the digital one. 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. It can be hard to predict what a future generation will do in the workplace. The generation Z also stands out, they are well connected and have gift from their parents of being keen with 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. At the workplace generation Z is bound to excel and whats more they will bring you some valuable knowledge that looking back you would have loved to own. Generation X is set aside from their can-do attitude that enables them to do well in what they put their mind to. They are early adopters of new technology too as much as they didn’t grow with a life filled with 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.
