The Next Generation

Gen X’ers, Millennials, and Baby-Boomers. There are many names for the 3 largest generational groups in the workforce today, but no matter what name you call them it doesn’t stop the differences between these age defined demographics from being a top concern among Human Resources professionals and managers across the nation. Age diversity in the workforce is increasing, and while the reasons for this are vast and important, the real question we want to ask today is what is the best way for an organization to ensure their employees form a cohesive, cooperative team despite these generational rifts?

The Colorado chapter of the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) is asking that very question and MINES & Associates’ Human Resource and Organizational Psychology Leader, Dr. Dani Kimlinger, has an answer for them. She challenges those dealing with generational diversity in their workforce to embrace it. The different experiences, the varied problem solving techniques, and the unique traits that each generation brings to the table provides valuable opportunities for team building and learning. To find out more, you can check out Dr. Kimlinger’s full article.

While it won’t appear in HFMA’s newsletter until October,  you can get a sneak peak right now by clicking here.

To your wellbeing,

– The MINES Team
