The young generations also need help
The smartphone has become an essential part of our lives. Especially for the younger generation it is a constant companion. Surprisingly, however, 41% of young people are afraid of the idea that in the future much will only be managed through the internet.
“Generation Internet" does not feel prepared for a digital future. These are the results of a study by the Federal Ministry of Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth.
What do we learn from this? Just because a generation has grown up online does not mean they can handle the internet or real-time collaboration, especially in a professional environment. A thoughtful manager must make a conscious effort to support each generation such that they are prepared for a digital future.
Especially for 14- to 24-year-olds, it is essential to be familiar with the demands of an accelerated, digital age and to be able to use the opportunities, the technology and the tools it produces to their advantage.
An agile manager cannot miss the opportunity to equip her employees with suitable knowledge and skills.
