On Managing Multigenerational Teams in the Workforce: Opportunities and Challenges in the Post Covid- 19 Era (ICMMTW)

July 21-22 , 2022

Advancements in digital and unified communications have made it easier than ever to work remotely and efficiently from anywhere in the world without affecting the quality of interactions (Parikh, 2021). The Covid-19 pandemic has hastened this happening where the workplace of the multigenerational workforce takes shape, with shifting roles, relationships and demands. Gig workers working on temporary jobs typically in the service sector as an independent contractor or freelancer are also increasing due to the “internet of everything” and Covid-19 pandemic (Deloitte, 2016, Maffie, 2020; Brown, Lund & Smit, 2021).

The future workplace is expected to be a combination of multimode, comprising physical-physical, physical-virtual and virtual-virtual with physical-virtual being the most popular mode (TheEdge Malaysia, 2022). This presents managers leading multigenerational teams in multimode with many opportunities and even more challenges (Bhayana, Gupta & Sharda, 2020; Brower, 2022).

Today’s workforce includes members of at least five different generations working side by side toward their business goals (Burton, Maygall, Cross, & Patterson, 2019; Human Resources, 2019). Using Waldman’s (2021, p.3) definition, each generation exhibit unique personality traits and values:

  1. The Silent Generation (born 1925 to 1945; loyal but traditional)
  2. Baby boomers (1946 to 1964; collaborative but averse to change)
  3. Generation X (1965 to 1980; independent but bleak)
  4. Millennials (1981 to 2000; driven but entitled)
  5. Generation Z (2001 to 2020; progressive but disloyal)

Depending on the retirement law in different countries, the silent generation is likely to be the smallest proportion of workers in the companies.

  • To examine the extent of multigenerational and multimode deployment in the business environment.
  • To examine new norms of managing multigenerational teams in multimode settings from finance, human resource, social and technological perspectives.
  • To identify mechanisms to ensure quality of leadership and works are not compromised.
