Believe it or not, multi-generational workforces have been shown to be more productive and have fewer turnovers than those without age diversity. Generational diversity has great potential. People from different generations can grow and learn from one another as they are exposed to one another’s ideas and experiences. The new perspectives they gain can spark new ideas and prompt new ways of working. Whether you text, tweet or actually talk on your cell or office phone, remember that each of the generations needs to be valued for the diverse skills, mindsets, and perspectives they bring to the workplace.
