The Future of Work™ Generations in the Workplace

Each generation brings its own unique work styles and expectations to the workplace, based on common experiences many of them share. Generational influences - like parenting styles, the pandemic, war, the economy, global impacts, popular culture and other defining moments or events - contribute to generational characteristics that are brought into the workplace. To have an inclusive workplace, you have to be intentional and willing to listen to others, gain perspectives, and make adjustments, with the ultimate goal of staying connected… across generations.
