CANBERRA, Australia - AussieJournal -- Multigenerational workforces are those which comprise of different generations. The Acorn subject matter experts recognise that despite each generation adapting to the times, they often hold different approaches and priorities that can lead to conflict. In order to help address the issue, the experts have written an article detailing the generations, the likely conflict spots and how these can be turned into opportunities. Acorn is a product of Pursuit Technology, and the full article can be found on their Acorn Labs blog:

The current working generations are baby boomers, generation X, millennials and generation Z. While it is rarer to encounter baby boomers in the workforce today, there are many workplaces which can see all these generations interconnected.

Consider that each generation approaches work differently. Older generations are satisfied with annual reviews while younger generations like to get frequent or instant feedback. Older generations care deeply about their standing in an organisation while younger generations place value on what an organisation can provide them in terms of opportunity, education and growth.

With the right strategies and management, the challenges of multigenerational workforces can be turned into opportunities. Contrasting values can become shared goals. Conflicting communication styles can be solved by inclusive leaders. Clashing approaches can be retooled into knowledge sharing.

"Creating shared goals and personal development opportunities helps to bridge generational gaps in the workforce," said Blake Proberts (Co-Founder & Managing Director). "Setting measurable goals for project timelines and training courses within an LMS opens clearer channels of communication and encourages knowledge sharing between peers."
