Book Description

Multigenerational Communication in Organizations explores generational differences in the changing workplace from a communication perspective.

Starting from the reality that a workplace can contain up to five different generations, these chapters examine topics like generational perceptions on the job search process; organizational culture; organizational identification; organizational crises; the dark side of workplace communication; remote working; and future challenges. Outlines of best practices and suggestions for application are provided based on the most recent data and corresponding literature. The authors also develop a data-forward understanding of Generation Z in context.

This book is ideal for both scholars and practitioners in organizational communication and management, as well as for workplace managers and supervisors.
