What Do You Stand for in Your Business Besides Making a Profit?
We are operating in a business climate that includes three generations in the workforce. That can be daunting and challenging when trying to mesh the differing values, beliefs and behaviors of each generation. While older workers seem comfortable with a set start/stop time, younger workers may want to mosey in at 10:00 after having worked into the wee hours of the morning. Both approaches can be successful with flexibility in the workplace and accountability for the job at hand. How can common ground and viable teamwork occur? Leaders who are willing and able to develop a culture of trust and transparency allowing team members to bond and be themselves is a good place to start. Having clarity around the organization’s purpose, mission and vision are also critical so that every worker can find a connection to their personal motivations and the job they perform. Start melding the divergent generations in your workplace together and you may see improved productivity, higher profits and happier employees as a result.
