Employee Engagement by Generation

We often hear that our thinking and capacity to learn undergo shifts and changes as we age. It is commonly believed that older individuals are resistant to acquiring new knowledge and skills, as the saying goes, "you can't teach an old dog new tricks." However, if you were to ask people above the age of forty about the mental age they feel they have reached, their answers might surprise you and challenge the notion of a significant age-related divide. Despite this, social scientists argue that each generation can be characterized by distinct traits shaped by their unique experiences during their formative years. As a result, as businesses and organizations, we recognize the need for different management approaches tailored to various age groups with their differing attitudes. In light of this, how can we effectively bridge the generational gap in the workplace?
