Generational Challenges

Human resources management has always been challenging, but the demands are even greater these days with three generations – the Baby Boomers, Gen X and Gen Y – dominating the workforce. getAbstract offers plenty of sound advice for integrating the diverse work habits and attitudes of employees often separated by three or four decades. We also will offer you techniques for keeping employee productivity and morale high in the midst of difficult economic circumstances.
