As there is a growing number of millennials in the workplace, the younger generations have biases on technical expertise, and are, in many cases, more tech-savvy than the generation above. The big question is ‘do millennials and baby boomers want the same thing?’. Well, it is undoubtable that they have grown up in very different worlds, however, they both want to be valued and rewarded. To create a global workforce, team members need to be able to share ideas and communicate regardless of age, culture, location. They need to have a connected sense of purpose.
Organisations have a responsibility to get team members to trust each other as they are on a joint journey to innovate and provide quality services to their customers.
