bridging the gap
much like siblings, multiple generations working at the same firm often bring entrenched points of view and strong biases that have at least some basis in truth. dropping these notions may be uncomfortable and require a conscious effort, but will benefit the firm as well as individual relationships within it.
with three distinct generations in the workplace today, the impacts of generational differences are phenomenal. firm leaders are challenged to balance and blend each generation’s unique historical context, motivators and somewhat differing values systems to create a unified team and a sustainable firm.
