KPMG 2020: Five Generations in the Workplace
For their Inclusion Week, KPMG put on this event looking at the diversity challenges a multi-generational workforce presents. Alice was invited to sit on the expert panel, which looked at how best to manage the five generations set to reach the workplace in 2020.
Hosted by Colm Coffey, Managing Director, P3 and moderated by Pom Davey, Senior Manager, EMA PPC, this event looked at managing a multi-generational workforce.
Like any organisation in the world today, KPMG is facing a new future in terms of demographics at work; an intergenerational workplace. In just five years’ time, the workplace will have five generations in the workplace at one time, with vast differences in work behaviours between the generations. This mixed, multi-generational environment is a new diversity challenge for organisations everywhere.
During this event, the expert panel explored issues such as:
- What are the implications of five generations in the workplace?
- Do we understand how work is done differently in different generations?
- Do we understand customer needs, interaction and work styles from different generations?
- What makes age diverse teams effective?

Aspiring Head Teacher
I discovered what my values and passions are, and, before long, I'd mapped out a career that reflected the real me - something I now have the confidence to pursue. I really can't recommend these sessions any higher for anyone who feels their career isn't heading in the direction they want but who isn't quite sure what that direction is.
