Handling Generational Diversity

Diversity has many faces, and it’s not only a question of racial, ethnic or gender differences.

The way in which the generations work together hasn’t been left unaffected. With the many rapid changes taking place in the workplace, traditional structures and formal hierarchies are no longer the most effective way to work.

The website Women For Hire features an insightful article called “Handling Generational Diversity” which pinpoints some of the generational myths still common in the workplace. The article also highlights areas in which people on either side of the age divide risk falling into the trap of stereotyping:

  • Authority and Hierarchy
  • Money and Advancement
  • Technology
  • Communication Styles
