SBA Poll Results: Generational Gap

The Question:
Are differences in communicating and expectations between the generations a problem in the workplace today?

26% - Yes, it’s a big problem and getting worse.

3% - It’s been a big problem but is getting better.

51% - We’ve had some issues, but we’re managing it.

21% - No, it’s not a problem and never has been.

My Comments:
The challenge of effective communication between the different generations is not a new issue. Indeed, it’s been going on for millennia. But we’re just now in a time when there are more generations in the workplace than any other time in my career. So we wanted to know how things are today with our poll question last week.

Frankly, I was surprised by the results you see above. I’ll have more to say about this in the Feature Article next week. Stay tuned and thanks for participating.
