Ramsey Alwin on the Benefits of the Multi-Generational Workforce Get Reworked

    • Management

Our workplaces hit a milestone in recent years: it was the first time on record that five generations shared the workplace. While there's been no shortage of articles on the needs and desires of individual generations, not much has been paid to the benefits the mix of generations produces — both for individuals and organizations. 
In this episode of Get Reworked, Ramsey Alwin, president and CEO of the National Council on Aging, shares how age diversity in the workplace benefits everyone and what we lose when ageism goes unchecked. 
Highlights of the conversation include:
The benefits of having multiple generations in the workplace.  What we can learn from New Zealand and Iceland about building age-inclusive workforces. How HR leaders can best promote age diversity in hiring and retention. The outsized impact layoffs has on older workers. How we should rethink careers as longevity increases. Plus, host Siobhan Fagan talks with Ramsey about the differences in advocating for change at the government level rather than the organizational level, what retirement means if we live till 150 and AARP marketing practices. Listen in for more.
