A generational perspective on working in travel industry

Managing a Multigenerational Workforce

Samenvatting

 High actual turnover rates in Dutch travel industry in combination with demographic changes in the workforce, may have consequences for economic sustainability for Dutch travel companies. A previous study has shown significant differences in the psychological contract of generations in the workplace in travel industry. This study was aimed at providing insights for creating generation-sensitive HR management. The research design included a qualitative in-depth study exploring meanings, beliefs and experiences of HR managers with three generations in the workplace. These HR managers experience differences in attitudes, values and expectations of generations and find the lower commitment and higher turnover intention of Generation Y especially problematic. Managing three generations essentially entails a differentiated style of management, taking into account generational differences.
