Multigenerational Working Course in Singapore
About This Course
In a work setting, it is important to surround yourself with familiar people who have the same interests and ethics as you. Usually, this comes from people of the same age or generation whom you go out with to have drinks after work. While there is nothing wrong with such a setting, it is also equally important to engage with people younger or older than you. Most of the young generation may find this taxing, talking to people who are like parents to them, and the older generation may find themselves out of depth with the modern lingo. However, interactions are necessary to achieve a common goal and in a multigenerational workplace, there could be challenges ahead.
Multigenerational workplaces are becoming common nowadays with executives staying in office longer and millennials entering the job market at an alarming pace. Though the diversity in this kind of setting provides distinct advantages for the company, nothing would come out of it if the employees lack mutual ground, open communication, and respect. With the right encouragement and atmosphere in the workplace, employees can be coaxed out of their shells into productive interactions.
This course hopes to encourage the participants into establishing fruitful working relationships with people belonging to different generations. It will provide a clear perspective of the advantages of multigenerational workforces and embracing the dynamics brought about by them.
