Motivating The Generations

With so many generations in the workplace right now, and often interrelating on projects, to manage them requires an understanding of what’s “of value” to them.
Here’s some guidance, provided by Melissa Borowica and Stephen Utech of Utech Consulting:
• Traditionalists (Before 1945): Want to leave a Legacy, so create opportunities that will have lasting impact. Learn from them. (75 million)
• Baby Boomers (1946-1964): Want to build a Meaningful Career. Challenge them. Use their Creativity. Insure they have Impact. (80 million)
• Generation Xers (1965-1980): Want to build a Portable Career. Invest visibly in their development. Show them a career path. (46 million)
• Millenials (1981-1999): Experimenting. Give them new positions, new challenges, a relocation opportunity. Title isn’t as important as personal growth. (76 million)
