Creating an inclusive work culture can be difficult if you don’t know where to start. It’s such an important task; how do you best respect and encourage the diversity and inclusion of everyone in your workplace? One of the most effective ways to keep talented employees is to make sure they feel represented and valued. This is a long-term effort that needs to be prioritized every day and updated consistently.
A multi-generational workforce consists of employees spanning multiple generations. Analysts have labeled generations with different names, such as Baby Boomers and Generation Y, and have highlighted characteristics shared by most members of each group. For instance, the Traditionalists are survivors of the Great Depression and World War II and therefore may tend to be more focused on patriotism, teamwork, and rules of order. Managers can better lead their employees by understanding these generational differences.
