  • We are approaching a time when your business will have to manage the needs and behaviours of four different generations all at once. And make no mistake, each generation behaves very differently.

    A multi-generational workplace is inevitably a complicated one. People of different ages typically have different perspectives on the world. They disagree on the most fundamental issues. They dress differently, eat differently and travel differently. And more pertinently, they work differently.

    Using the latest research, insights and opinions available, Russell Beck, Impellam’s Head of Consulting, examines the challenges inherent within a multi-generational workforce.

    He’ll be focusing on the three generations that are currently the most abundant at work; Baby Boomers, Generation X and Generation Y.
