To communicate clearly with each generation in today’s generationally diverse workforce, you need to understand the political, societal, and technological events that shaped each generation’s core beliefs and values. Once you understand the history, traits, and culture of each generation, you can then better speak each generation’s language, which builds rapport and trust. The result? Higher sales, improved bottom-line results, and increased employee retention.
So what are the political, societal and technological events that shaped each generation? Take a look at my presentation below for a breakdown of each generation, their basic traits, and the events that shaped them.
