Defining Wellbeing Across the Generations

When we look at the components of workplace well-being from a holistic view, factors such as practical responsibilities, workplace design, working relationships, job demands and stressors, policies and practices, and the number of hours worked all play a role. Another factor is how an individual prioritizes the goal of living well. One of the strongest influences on that definition is age.
What matters most to one generation in terms of well-being doesn’t necessarily hold true to another. In order to foster employee engagement, employers must look at the well-being needs across the generations and then make adjustments and improvements to ensure those needs are being met.
