In this course, you'll learn about differences in approaches to work and communication between the main demographic generations: Baby Boomer, Gen X, and Millennial, also known as Gen Y. You'll also learn strategies to manage your team in a way that ensures team members of each generation feel included, respected, and supported.

Managing Multigenerational Employees
Many influences have shaped the lives and work experiences of various generations, namely the Baby Boomer, Gen X, Millennial (or Gen Y), and Gen Z generations. Because each generation has its own distinct attitudes, priorities, needs, and work habits, managers can get the best from a multigenerational workforce by using strategies that recognize the differences. In this course, you'll learn about the best practices and successful techniques for managing these multigenerational employees in the workplace. You'll also explore methods for overcoming multigeneration challenges such as ageism and stereotypes to ensure that all employees feel respected and can make a positive contribution to your organization.
