Organizations that can capitalize on the synergies that these generations create in the workplace, will not only be able to survive economic uncertainty, but also thrive during better economic times. As a result, talent management has to become more strategic in order to innovate and adapt to the new realities of the workforce demographics. But what does this mean?
