Understanding the desires and interests of people different from you is a commonly overlooked hardship, but one that becomes obviously important when working towards building an incentive program in a diverse community. The current workforce sees around four to five generations working side-by-side, and this makes it all the more crucial to learn the ins and outs of what makes each generation tick.
Typically a company could have graduates fresh out of university, managers who’ve been in the field for longer than anyone can remember, and mid-levels with several years of experience under their belt. Forging an inclusive environment where the unique value each generation brings to the table can flourish is an ideal scenario.
These age groups typically have largely varying interests and pastimes, and this can make for a hard time when finding incentives that will appeal to everyone. Understanding each generation's different needs and perspectives is crucial to forming a versatile recognition program that will keep up with the times for you.
Here we list the key takeaways from each generation and gift ideas that’ll keep your team going, no matter which generation they’re from.
1) Baby Boomers (1946-64)
