The makeup of the workforce is evolving. By 2020, Millennials and Generation Z – people born from the 1980s onwards – will comprise nearly 60% of the workforce. Businesses need to strike a balance between attracting and retaining the best young talent and making sure they don’t alienate their Generation X leaders. Finding this employee-experience ‘sweet spot’ will enable them to thrive and truly harness the power of shared knowledge across the generations.
Ultimately, helping the workforce work together is the key to future-proofing your business and becoming undisruptable. Employees are increasingly used to seamless tech experiences in their personal lives and expect them everywhere they interact or have an impact. Just as they would do with technology providers outside work, if they don’t get the experience they want they will look for it elsewhere.
The workforce is made up of a diverse range of individuals with a variety of demands that influence the way businesses work. As harnessing the power of shared knowledge becomes a priority, organizations are now focusing on the key areas that matter more to workers: inclusion, flexibility, individualism, entrepreneurship, well-being, purpose and personal development.
