Manage and Motivate Employees Across Generations

Key Points

  • Each generation has different values, attitudes, expectations, needs and motivations, all of which can make it more challenging to manage and integrate everyone into a cohesive corporate culture.
  • A first step to understanding a particular generation is to understand what is meant by each label as well as the generation's distinct set of characteristics, challenges and values since they shape each generation's relationships with their managers and co-workers.
  • Take into account the different styles and expectations of each generation. Remember that no single management style is perfect for any generation because individual personalities also have to be taken into consideration.
