How do we Bridge the Gap between the Five Generations in the Workforce and Reduce Biases around Age?
Quinones, Donald; Tian, Bixi
In today’s organizations, as many as four to five generations work together. The multigenerational workplace is vulnerable to age biases that can lead to lower job and organizational satisfaction. These biases are of particular harm to older employees, whose performance suffers the most under biased managers. However, gaps between generations may be smaller than perceived, with many generations sharing similarities in values and organizational commitment. Even if the “generation gap” is small, eliminating bias and creating a diverse work environment is important for organizational success.
