The report also found that the approach to age diversity is evolving within organizations: from a compliance-only focus, to an older worker and then multigenerational approach, to an integrated age management strategy. Even in organizations that have implemented age-related initiatives focused on younger or older workers, the internal strategic focus is on the four generations in the workplace--veterans (born before 1946), boomers, Gen Y, and the up and coming Gen 2020 (born after 2000--and enhancing intergenerational relationships.
The practices examined included:
- a program for retirees enabling
project work, consulting, volunteerism and website resources.
- a toolkit to better equip managers with the resources needed to successfully lead multigenerational teams.
- employee resource groups for boomers and young professionals
