Generational Conflict in the Workplace

You need more than motivation to get the best effort from your employees, you also need to find a way to get them to collaborate as a team. However, that can be quite the challenge since no two people are the exactly the same. One of the biggest reasons for conflict in the workplace is the generation gap. Your employees are likely to include people of all ages, and their perspectives and personalities can vary widely.

Building a multi-generational workforce where all of these different work styles and backgrounds work together effectively doesn’t happen overnight. However, with some proven strategies, it can be done. For example, setting up a peer mentoring program gives older employees the opportunity to teach their younger colleagues while building bonds between them. It is also important to gather feedback from all employees to understand all perspectives.
