Lauren’s Column: Working across the ages: multigenerational teams offer multiple benefits
In Lauren’s latest Rochester Business Journal column, “Working across the ages: Multigenerational teams offer multiple benefits,” she discusses the importance of embracing the multigenerational workforce and how two-way cross-generational mentorships are the way of the future. She shares how incorporating the fresh perspectives of team members new to the workforce combined with the experience of veterans is the secret sauce for creative, strategic solutions at DS+CO.
“If you describe a company culture as being ‘like a family,’ well, you need people of all ages to create a rich, family fabric woven with meaningful relationships and connections across generations. Like a family, we all want to make a difference and are all working toward our common goals. And we’re more alike than we are different.”
We’d love to hear from you on Twitter. What do you think about this? What success do you find coming from the multigenerational workforce? Tweet us @DixonSchwabl!
