Scene: You’re a millennial, hanging out with your fellow BYJUites who are Gen Z and Gen X . It’s going good until a Gen Zer says something you don’t get, and by the looks of it, neither does the older generation. Not wanting to appear dated, you just smile and nod, making a mental note to google this later.
Sounds familiar? We’ve all been there, where we’re unable to understand the lingo or point of view of a generation different from ours, but to avoid embarrassment, we don’t make any attempts either.
BYJU’S ecosystem is unlike any other, comprising a multi-generational workforce that functions in perfect harmony with each other every day. While every generation is raised differently with different values and has developed its own unique communication style, we believe in bridging the generation gap rather than dismissing it. We say yes to different approaches, skills, and experiences, propelling us to do inspirational work.
We spoke to Generation X, Millennials, and Generation Z, who addressed the distinctive characteristics and strengths of different generations, and what they learn from each other. The BYJUites also throw light on establishing a culture of cross-generational collaboration, practising open communication, and showing respect, because we are here to SLAY together!
These BYJUites definitely understood the assignment! At BYJU’S, the key to understanding other generations is to respectfully accept that we are different from one another while acknowledging individual strengths, weaknesses, and skills. With the right approach, let’s reap the benefits of a multi-generational culture and build a stronger bond.
You must have worked with colleagues from other generations too. Tell us about your experience in the comments below. We would love to know how you bridge the generational gap!
I'm Naqshib Nisar aka the Ministry of Happiness. A digital journalist who can write anything under the sun. When I'm not writing, I'm definitely discovering hidden gems of a city or exploring the food culture. Being a language enthusiast, I grasp words from songs I don't really understand. I'm mostly in the procaffeinating mode because coffee comes first. Hit me up if you ever want to find the best cappuccino and croissants in Bangalore.
