Are the Generational Interactions in the Brazilian Workplace Different From Other Countries? (Published)
This case approaches the differences between the generational interactions in the Brazilian workplace, in comparison with other countries, according to the current epistemology. Previous research points each newcomer employees’ generation with different expectations and motivations, regarding workplace activities. Entering a new job and dealing with the challenges of the initial period of time following entry is critical and demands substantial effort to adjust to new supervisors and peers. The reduction of conflict and ambiguity is an important outcome for organizational leaders in the areas of employee recruitment, engagement, and retention. Thus, we investigated the generational interactions in the Brazilian workplace, since there are few studies on the subject to support HRM practices in a wide and diverse country as Brazil. Finally, we brought future research implications.
