Prof. Ochis Published in AACSB Insights On The Multigenerational Workforce

Monarch is happy to announce that Professor Dr. Karina Ochis has been published in “Insights” the online magazine of AACSP accreditation agency.

The article highlights that a business’s long-term success depends on the willingness and ability of its employees to work effectively together. But today’s companies must manage four generations of employees: boomers and members of Generations X, Y, and Z. All four have different attitudes about work, careers, and personal commitment.

The article continues to state that company leaders often are pessimistic about the ability of their mid- and upper-level managers to effectively engage members of all four generations. For their part, many managers feel unsupported by company leaders and unsure of what to do or where to start. And that Business schools can help by recognizing the problem and adapting their curricula to better serve those who must manage and lead these employees. But academics first must understand the conflicts that might arise in the multigenerational workplace.

The article is an outgrowth of the PhD research complete by Professor Ochis while a doctoral student at Monarch Business School Switzerland.
