AGE GAP IN WORK COMMUNICATION

In the workplace, according to data from the report prepared by GlobalWebIndex, email is still one of the most used communication channels at workBut even in this case, age plays a major role.

More than 90 percent of respondents under 45 use email each week, but nearly one in five ages 55-64 say they use email less than once a week.

This ‘age gap’ is most evident when it comes to other types of digital communication. About nine out of ten Gen Z respondents – born after 1996 – say they use messaging platforms like WhatsApp and Slack to communicate with their peers each week, but only half of those surveyed between the ages of 55 and 64 use them regularly. usual way.

These findings highlight important differences in the way people of different ages and at different levels of the company communicate, as pointed out by Hootsuite and We Are Social.
