"Multigenerational workforce is a reality in today’s employment. The composition of the workforce has shifted from heavily Baby Boomers to primarily Millennials between 2010 and present day, however the older generations are remaining in the workforce as well, not necessarily being replace. This change in dynamics presents many challenges for the leaders of today as the expectations and motivators from one generation to the next tend to differ greatly. Existing research delves into the differences and why they exist, and it begins to answer some of the questions leaders have. Leaders must find the methods and leadership styles that will encourage, engage, and motivate workers from all generations. These questions are explored, and suggestions made for the most effective methods of encouraging them to learn from each other."
