Silver Spring was among the key participants at this year’s Age Management Seminar organised by the Workforce Development Authority. Silver Spring’s Founder and CEO, Mrs Helen Lim, who delivered the keynote address, spoke about creating effectiveness at the workplace. She highlighted that a key ingredient to achieving this was the ability of employers to understand the reality and dynamics of having a multi-generational workforce in their companies. 

Mrs Lim said that some companies today already have up to five generations of employees working together. These five generations comprise the Traditionalists (age 68 and above), the Baby Boomers (age 50 to 68), the Gen Xs (age 38 to 49), the Gen Ys (age 20 to 37) and the Gen Zs (age 19 and below). She pointed out that in order to be effective at the workplace as well as to create an effective workplace, having a strong Age Quotient would be a necessity, that is an  individual’s or employer’s willingness, capacity and strategy to understand age attributes and differences of each generation as a means of bridging communication and collaboration gaps.

Over 300 participants attended the annual Age Management Seminar in June.
