Due to change in social environment, dealing with the new generation is a challenge as said by the director of the institution.

They should be done on a wider perspective which will take the informal sector as well as the industrial workforce into consideration.
Ms Rashmi Mansharamani, Corporate Head (HR), The Wave Group, mentioned the challenges faced by taking everyone to focus on a single goal. She also shared her real-life experiences. She added that the joint forces of the senior managers and the strategies of young employees helped a lot in solving this problem.
On describing the requirements of industry, she said, “Four competencies that are a must for any position irrespective of age or gender is data proficiency, digital mindset, adjustability and learning ability.”
The experience of working with multiple generations is also shared by Mr Diwakar Puri, Head HR, Hero MotoCorp said, “People can’t be put in buckets according to only the generations they are born in since people of the youngest generation might as well possess old-fashioned mindsets, and vice- versa.”
