The author of this article argues that Baby Boomers, Millennials, and Gen X employees are being unfairly labelled and it is leading to a disconnect between management and employees—one that can adversely affect an organization’s culture.
This article by Jessica Kriegel, writing for TLNT, makes the following points:
- Generational stereotypes can fall under ‘unconscious bias', which can adversely affect our behaviour—and the organisation’s bottom line.
- Managers need to implement a new approach that will disrupt the way we think about generations to attract, engage, and retain employees.
- A toolkit for facilitating inter-generational understanding at all levels of the organization is necessary to see past preconceived notions of age groups.
- Generational stereotyping is really just age discrimination hiding behind a generational label.
