The Future of Work™ Generations in the Workplace

SOLLAH EXCLUSIVE!

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.

That Was the Most Bizarre Meeting! (from The Future of Work™)

Ageism has to do with people being discounted because of their age… being seen as too young or too old. Treating people differently in employment based on things like age can be unlawful. Bias based on age is a reality. Examples of age-related bias are coded comments such as someone is “set in their ways,” or “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” Being passed over for opportunity - assumptions such as older workers don’t understand technology and that younger workers are immature - are all examples of bias at work.

When the Boss Calls a Meeting… (from The Future of Work™)

When generational communication differences cause misunderstandings about things like work requirements and work/life balance, what do you do? Our generational differences do influence our views about authority, and hierarchy. They also impact the things we say and how we say them. Many organizations have inherited traditional structures and practices that are rooted in militaristic approaches popular in the past. Using the M.E.E.T.® model is like having a coach helping us through the process. That way we create shared understanding, new agreements, and clear expectations.

The speed of communication is increasing and changing. This happens at all levels whether it’s face-to-face, online, text, email, video, phone... It’s happening all the time, everywhere, and impacts every generation.
