Kim Shepherd to Recruiting Trends: Cross-Generational Employees are a Goldmine

image description

Decision Toolbox CEO Kim Shepherd and Senior Writer Tom Brennan recently contributed a byline article to Recruiting Trends, discussing the opportunity that employing cross-generational team members brings to a company.

Excerpt from the article:

Today’s workforce is made up of more generations than any other workforce in history: the Silent Generation (born 1923-1944), Baby Boomers (1945-1964), Generation X (1961-1981), and the Millennials (1975-1995) – and Gen Z is coming. If you can harness this rich source of diverse values and worldviews, you stand to become three times stronger than your competition.

Such diversity can create challenges in multigenerational workforces, but the benefits can far outweigh the challenges. Smart companies will ensure their recruitment efforts are inclusive of ALL generations.

The article includes tips to communicate more effectively to each generational style, how to harness the unique worldviews from each generation to create super solutions to business problems, and recruiting tips to appeal to each generation’s values.
