Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: The purpose of this evidence-based poster is to identify strategies in managing the multigenerational workforce. The background of the problem is that four generational groups currently exist in the workplace. Each generational group has individual attitudes, behaviors, and expectations of the workplace, and present challenges to leaders who manage this diverse workgroup. Overall, nurse leaders lack the essential skills and strategies to manage issues in communication, conflict, recruitment and retention, and work ethic in the work environment. The evidence showed nurse leaders can have a significant impact on the work environment by becoming aware of the strengths, weaknesses, and unique characteristics of each individual generational group, and work toward developing strategies in communication, workgroup commitment, and morale of the multigenerational workforce. An integrative summary provided a summary of this evidence for this poster. Implications for nursing practice are that nurse leaders need to be prepared for the future workforce, and to be aware that diversity will continue in the workplace. Further research is needed to explore strategies in leading this diverse nursing workgroup. The future nursing work environment will continue to be challenging. Nursing leaders will have to adapt to the ever-changing workforce and health care environment, and create new approaches and skills to promote good working relationships and environments among the generations, and foster better outcomes for patients.
