Tactics Are Offered for Successful Multi-Generational Employee Development

Successful employee development across generations is now a major challenge for both growing and struggling companies.

To help meet that challenge, a complimentary white paper is available offering business leaders practical tactics.

Employee Development Systems Inc. has distilled some of the most relevant and pressing generational and training issues for leaders to address and shows how they can be resolved and even work as catalysts for learning, professional development and ultimately, a more productive workforce.

The following are some of the front-line tactics being used in successful multi-generational workplaces. They can be implemented quickly, making an equally fast shift in the office climate and the ability of all generations in the organization to focus on their work, in contrast to communication barriers, work-habit differences and other frustrations:

  • Offer mentoring programs that are toggled to training programs.
  • Keep employees engaged.
  • Open up the office – rearrange the traditional cube structure.
  • Create recognition programs.
  • Focus on the meaning and purpose of the work, every day.
  • Leverage the unique skills of each employee.
  • Talk about and clarify appropriate communication methods for your organization.
  • Limit meetings and introduce one-on-one coaching sessions.
  • Set a high bar for professionalism.

Here are more tactics, from a leadership and organizational perspective:

  • Use “layered” technology tools, to ensure that all generations are able to learn at their optimum performance level.
  • Recognize the importance of organizational culture and of effectively conveying it to all employees
  • Clarify and prioritize professionalism and what it means in the context of the organization.
  • Ensure that all employee growth is rooted in core-competency dimensions.
  • Understand and utilize effective performance management.
  • Utilize a well-respected workplace-assessment tool in order to help employees understand themselves and their own motivators, as well as those of their colleagues.

Employee Development Systems Inc. provides complimentary resources to help business leaders navigate the communication challenges in their workplace.  Read the complimentary white paper, which can be found here: http://www.employeedevelopmentsystems.com/media/Pdfs/GenMixSuccess_WhitePaper.pdf.
