Discussion Multigenerational Workforce

Leadership challenges posed by the multigenerational workforce are many. One solution may not fit all employment settings or projects within the same setting. How do you value the Boomer Generation workforce while engaging Gen Y for a successful and harmonious work environment? What does the future hold for your organization if you, as a leader, are unwilling or unable to adapt your leadership style in concert with your ever-changing staff demographics?

This week, you are asked to research and find an additional scholarly publication that either supports or rejects the position of the Learning Resource articles. Comparing and contrasting through synthesis is an effective tool for thought leading to implementation and evaluation.

To Prepare

  • Review the Learning Resources.
  • Research and find a scholarly publication that supports or rejects the position of the Learning Resources.

By Day 3

Post a description of a scholarly article you identified within the last 5 years on the multigenerational workforce in the government or nonprofit sector. (The article must not be one of the Learning Resource articles). Include the APA citation of the article with your description. Next, synthesize this article with at least one of the readings included in your Learning Resources. Reflect on your experience of working within a multigenerational workforce.
