عنوان مقاله [English]
Effective management of age groups in the workplace is one of the issues in the research and executive space of the organization. With the entry of young workers into organizations and the diversity of different generations, questions have been raised about the quantity and quality of personality and behavioral differences between people of different generations. The purpose of this study is to investigate the personality differences of people born in the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s and its implications for human resource management. For this purpose, using the Neo 240-item personality test, the required data were collected in a large sample of 36,719 people across the country. The mean differences of the five personality traits between the generations were evaluated based on one-way ANOVA analysis, Scheffe post hoc test and effect size. The results showed that despite the existence of statistically significant differences in terms of practical significance and effect size, there is no significant difference between generational groups and common differences are mainly due to age rather than generational stereotypes. Therefore, it is suggested that managers and HR professionals focus on individual differences instead of relying on generational stereotypes.
