Many companies are acknowledging the importance to include younger people in their workforce, yet few are succeeding to positively engage with younger people, let alone ensuring that they stay within the company for an extended time.
It was because of this exact reason (and others) that Generation Index was developed. Not only to provide organisations with a more informed understanding of who the different generations are, but also to highlight areas that if addressed, the effectiveness of developing a healthy InterGenerational work environment could increase; a key element to the success of any company.
Generational Index was developed based on multiple individual and collective research done within south and southern Africa for the last 10+ years; interviewing hundreds of young people around their personal experiences in the workplace. The study was motivated by a theory; “by identifying the common behavioral trends between generations, and creating intentional focus within the workspace to address them, a healthier environment of collaboration will be developed”.
“Every company, regardless of size or product offering, should take a hard look at itself every year using rigorous self-assessment to determine what is working in its organisation as well as what is not. It is also essential to understand the external environment and how that impacts your business today as well as in the future.”
