GENERATIONS: What is the productivity potential of your multigenerational workforce?

Protiviti is proud to be collaborating with The Inclusion Initiative at the London School of Economics (LSE) on a three-year study about generations in the workforce. The study will provide organisations with specific, data-driven insights to increase productivity across the various generations of the workforce.

Why a Survey on Generations?

Harnessing the knowledge, skills and connections each generation brings to the workplace can deliver productivity gains and a competitive edge. Yet, organisations lack research-based evidence on this topic. Additionally, DEI agendas routinely neglect generational diversity and inclusion, with frictions between generations negatively impacting productivity. This data will aid in the ability to fully unlock the productivity potential of the various generations.

Participate in the GENERATIONS Survey

The survey responses will provide you with deep insights into workers across different career levels and generations, which can guide you in developing specific actions you can take to improve productivity. The survey will take around 15 minutes to complete. In return you will receive the full survey report spanning results from all participating organisations around the globe that you can use to benchmark yourself against other companies.

Our Preliminary Findings

The benefits outlined in this report highlight the need for deeper, ongoing understanding of the experiences of workers across the generations.

Prior to the launch of the Generations Survey, The Inclusion Initiative embarked on preliminary research, drawing data from more than 1,450 employees in Finance, Technology and Professional Services Industries in the United States and the United Kingdom. The results of that research can be found in our initial report, GENERATIONS: Unlocking the Productivity Potential of a Multigenerational Workforce.

This report underscores a call to action for leaders to prioritise intergenerational inclusion by making it central to DEI and talent strategies. It shows that, despite the clear potential for productivity gains through intergenerationally-inclusive work practices, firms continue to miss out due to frictions between employees of different generations negatively impacting productivity.
