Managing Across Generations: Trust Is The Equalizer

 Managing Across Generations: Trust Is The Equalizer
Contrary to popular mainstream narratives, millennials in the workplace value many of the same things as older generations in the workplace. Smith School of Business shares how career development and ethics within an organization are of particular importance to the youngest generation of workers and their colleagues.

Millennials have developed quite the reputation in their limited time in the workforce. They are labeled, unfairly, as job hoppers. As overly needy of attention. As uniquely difficult to manage.

But, according to a survey conducted by Great Place to Work (GPTW), these early-career employees have more in common with their older colleagues than one would think. The results suggest that managing across generations needn’t be overly challenging so long as a foundation of trust is in place.
