Managing the value gap among generations in organizations: socio-psychological approach


Sahraee, Rezvan and Abdullah, Haslinda (2017) Managing the value gap among generations in organizations: socio-psychological approach. International Journal of Academic Research in Business and Social Sciences, 7 (8). pp. 681-685. ISSN 2222-6990


Over the few past decades, value gap among generations has presented new challenges for organizations. Although studies have suggested value congruence as a mechanism to bring generations closer together, this study presents evidence showing that providing an autonomy-supportive environment, where higher levels of psychological need satisfaction for autonomy, competence, and relatedness are experienced by employees, facilitates the process of internalization and embrace of others' values. Such a context would result in better communication, mutual understanding, and bridging the generation gap effectively at workplace.
