Intergenerational Workplaces

For the 1st time in history, there are now 5 different generations active in the workplace simultaneously.  We want to celebrate this fact and encourage the 5 generations to collaborate and connect in the workplace for the benefit of all.

The Intergenerational (or multigenerational) workplace is a consequence of the longer and healthier lives many can now look forward to. On average we are living 30 years longer than our grandparents. Not everybody wants to exit the workplace at a certain age point in their lives and society in general benefits from retaining that expertise that many years of experience has created.

At The Grey Matters Network we are enthusiastic supporters of the Intergenerational Workplace. We have held several major events, pre Covid. We are delighted with the support we have receive from organisations, academia, and politicians.

We believe that an age diverse and inclusive workplace is good for all.

We intend to continue to promote and encourage this conversation through this forum.

Inclusive Workplace

Represent your customers in your workplace

Older adults hold the majority of the country’s discretionary income and are a growing customer base for businesses.

Employer Brand

Build your employer brand as you recognise the diverse value that each generation brings to your organisation.  Attract and retain employees for short and long term roles from across the multigenerational workforce.

Harness Generational Intelligence

Employers’ focus is shifting from generational differences between employees to harnessing ‘generational intelligence’ and trying to bring together the intelligence and skills unique to each generation to create a harmonious workplace. The Future Workplace Experience
