Harris, Rothenberg International, Inc., Releases Trends Report:
"When the Golden Rule No Longer Applies: The Multigenerational Workplace"
New York, NY, August 23, 2007 — In order to help companies
effectively and respectfully manage the different generations, with their differing
needs and work habits, www.harrisrothenberg.com [Harris, Rothenberg International
(HRI), LLC] has released a trends report "When the Golden Rule No Longer Applies:
The Multigenerational Workplace."
Workplace diversity is a good thing: it's good for new ideas, new talent, and public
relations. Different generational work styles, each with its own characteristic
energy and world view, are valuable to organizations when they can be harnessed
as complementary rather than competing forces. This type of diversity can enrich
every work environment, with the right leadership. Management may turn to its Human
Resources (HR) Departments to help transform potential intergenerational conflicts
into a productive and healthy form of workforce diversity. HRI's trends report gives
examples of successful strategies companies have used to tackle the differences
among the generations, and can help HR and management embrace intergenerational
"There is a lack of understanding in the workplace today," says Dr. Edward Trieber,
Managing Director of HRI, "Individuals from different generations do not understand
each other and, therefore, have difficulty working together. If they just took the
time to understand and learn from one another, the workplace would be one cooperative
unit. HRI's trends report helps teach companies how to promote understanding and
institute policies that help the generations work together effectively."
