Question: How do we effectively manage a multigenerational workforce?


Answer: There certainly has been a great deal of discussion in recent years relating to the perceived differences among generations in the workplace. While age and generational cohort are important aspects of workplace diversity, it is important to treat everyone fairly and equitably and avoid stereotyping employees or assuming all members of a demographic group want the same things.
