Intergenerational Workplaces

The scrapping of the default retirement age in 2011 and the investment in the apprenticeship levy in 2017 has meant workforces are more likely than ever to be intergenerational: made up of five generations working together.

Intergenerational Workforces: Why You Need them

The scrapping of the default retirement age in 2011 and the investment in the apprenticeship levy in 2017 has meant workforces are more likely than ever to be intergenerational: made up of five generations working together.

Age diversity presents challenges relating to understanding difference because every generation thinks differently, is interested in different issues and motivated by different things, but it can be easy to forget this in the workplace. By supporting you to understand these different dynamics, Inclusive Employers can enable you to maximise the performance of your intergenerational workforce.
