Today the generation Z accounts for the largest number of people joining the workforce next to the millennial generation. The number of people over sixty going into retirement is also less. This is a workforce with a lot of diversity and that presents the HR with a challenge. The baby boomer generation makes up the upper-level management for many organizations, they have done well to adopt mobile technology but they are still yet to master some skills like typing. The task is in the balancing of the tech-savvy but socially deficient generation Z with the social but tech deficient boomer generation.
Generalization of generations is common and something that is a bit to avoid . Taking note of everyone for the generbecomeare becomes difficult. The generation gaps are set aside by the historical experiences more than the age group. Baby Boomers are associated with the free love revolution and it was the time when the computer and the internet became mainstream. This generation bought tech for their children in the 90s but had no time become savvy. Boomers value loyalty compared to any other values.
After the free love revolution the boomers would go down in history as one of the most hardworking generation. The baby boomers will be more motivated with visible productivity, they prefer to work with more hands-on analog technology than the digital one. For the boomers that are not efficient with technology they can use paper which can be then converted into digital copy through the use of intelligent character recognition. It can be hard to predict what a future generation will do in the workplace. With the generation Z, they stand out in their own way as they are known to be well detected and from their parents they have a drive for mentorship.
This is the generation that is eager to learn and not take anything for granted . If you are looking to incorporate generation workplace work place you should set them up with a millennial mentor or a generation X mentor. At the workplace generation Z is bound to excel and whats more they will bring you some valuable knowledge that looking back you would have loved to own. Generation X is set aside from their can-do attitude that enables them to do well in what they put their mind to. Generation X is known to be an early adopter of technology despite the fact that they did not grow around it. with millennial generation they happen to be the most understood but at the workplace when given mobility and freedom they will outdo other generations.
