Is the generation gap working for you?


To keep up with today’s pace of organisational change you must harness and manage the different generational capabilities your employees bring to your organisation, says 'Gen Up: how the four generations work', a joint UK survey Report.

Each generation brings to your business divergent skills in digital technology, information management and entrepreneurialism, combined with long-standing wisdom, change management and customer service ethos, says the Gen Up 2008 report by Penna and CIPD.

To help make generational diversity work for you, Gen Up offers the following tips:

  • Analyse your workforce’s generational mix and future impact on your business;
  • Conduct an employee survey to determine the views and motivations of different age groups;
  • Audit your internal communications to assess if they are flexible enough to meet the preferences of all employee groups;
  • Ensure your brand conveys a compelling message that attracts and engages all generations;
  • Analyse staff career development opportunities and ensure that no groups are disadvantaged;
  • Consider radical changes to flexible working practices;
  • Enhance coaching and mentoring opportunities across generational groups;
  • Re-engage Baby Boomers;
  • Re-evaluate your Corporate Social Responsibility policies and practices;
  • Identify areas of generational commonality and build on them; work at building harmony in the business.

ON THE HORIZON

Can you take a quick look at this?


"Can you take a quick look at this?" is an innocent request heard every day in all sorts of workplaces: offices, factories, warehouses, shops and mines.

It's the kind of interaction that can demonstrate a healthy willingness among employees and managers to ask for help from their colleagues, to seek second opinions, and to engage in collaboration and cooperation.

Yet, the off-hand request for a "quick look" can also set the stage for workflow errors, poor production quality, damage to reputation, strains on relationships, and even physical injury or death.

Watch this space in the July edition of ProActive Voice for how to manage a "quick look".
