Are we ready for the four generation workforce?

Are we ready for the four generation workforce?

Fifty is the 40. Which in turn is the new 30. And before long, 70 will constitute middle aged. Confused?

Demographic and lifestyle changes are happening so quickly that clichés are fast being made redundant. What was once 'past it' is now raring to go -which is just as well, since our workplaces, like our society, are getting older. 'We now have people buying their first home at the age of 41', or leaving home in their mid-30's. Shifts in the economy have forced us to look again at age' says Richard McKenna, director of membership organisation Inclusive Employers. The changing face of tomorrow’s workforce will be very different than the face of yesterdays. At Clark we feel this will allow generations learn from each other and this is seen as a very positive thing! Information sourced from 'People Management' August2015 edition.
