Today’s workforce is a multigenerational collection of individuals who have grown together as a result of many years of expansion, attrition, consolidation, and new hiring policies. This assimilation of many generations — and many perspectives — under a single roof can often pose organizational, managerial, and instructional challenges. Unless these complications are recognized and addressed, those gaps can create a communications stumbling block that impedes a company’s or an organization’s long-term success.
The best way to address this in terms of workplace education is through a cross-generational training strategy. However, prior to designing your strategy, it is important to recognize the specific nature of the challenges that lie ahead.
