Each generation brings different expectations and motivations to work each day and it’s the role of management to figure out how to maximize the talents of everyone for mutual benefit.

1.Engage with employees and encourage communication.
2. Ask employees how they can make their greatest contribution.
3. State clearly what the employer needs; and ask what employees need.
Engagement creates an environment that allows both parties to share expectations and needs. Kasmirski says that the biggest challenge employers will face is employee retention. Engaging and team building with employees is beneficial and is a key strategy for employee retention.
