The way we learn and share knowledge has changed. Net Generation workers have specific expectations about technology and the workplace, particularly when it comes to leveraging their natural digital-social ecosystem to perform valuable tasks such as technology trend forecasting. Traditional teaching methods are analytical and linear. Net Geners perceive the world multidimensionally, at ease with the cooperative nature of information networks.
Today’s generation learns and works differently. Companies that resist this change risk frustrating this growing workforce, resulting in loss of productivity and employee morale. Businesses need embrace the Net Gen’s techno-centric worldview and transform the workplace accordingly. It is by meeting the needs of these digitally-connected workers that companies can keep up with the challenges of the digital age.
