SA: Managing up in todays cross generational workplace
With 4 generations in the workplace managing up has never been more difficult. Come along and hear tips from industry and HR Professionals on how to create a productive and harmonious workplace.

Lately, everyone is talkin ‘bout your generation as the song goes. With an age gap of nearly 50 years between the oldest and youngest employees in some organisations, there is a broad range of perspectives, needs and attitudes floating around the office. Today’s workplace is most definitely a multi-generational one – and each generation has its own set of expectations, needs, values and working styles.

While generational diversity in the workforce promotes a broader range of talent, it can often mean conflicting ideas and stereotyping – the Baby Boomers think Generation X needs a stronger work ethic, Gen X sees the Boomers as self-absorbed workaholics workaholics – and Generation Y is often labelled as selfish and self-entitled.

We know these statements are generalised and this is not true for most of us, but still the perceptions of each generations is well documented in the media and a part of conversations in the workplace around the water cooler and between peers.

Recognising and understanding generational differences can help everyone learn to work together more effectively and transform your workplace from a generation war zone to an age-diverse and productive team.
