HR managers have always tried to find solutions on how to manage their most important intangible asset – the workforce – of their companies. The challenge of meeting the demands of a changing work force, accelerated by a generation gap, has been a much talked of subject, among HR professionals. Various innovations in ICT have made today’s workplace entirely different. Widening the generation gap, the Millennials have become a dominant group in the global workforce and have a different set of priorities than the previous generations. Tomorrow’s workforce, more than any other generation is looking for a sense of purpose and fulfilment from their work. To manage such a diverse 21st century workforce, that craves for innovation and prosperity, HR managers to be good leaders through communication and inspiration.
