Intergenerational Transfer of Knowledge in Polish Enterprises in the Perception of Employees

Joanna Moczydłowska , Karol Kowalewski


The management of generational differences is aimed at achieving success thanks to synergy stemming from effective cooperation of workers of different age groups. The article implies that applying this concept requires positive attitude of the managerial staff based on knowledge and positive emotions realised through certain behavioural tendencies. In order to diagnose attitudes of Polish managers towards the management of generational differences, 62 narrative interviews with senior staff representatives of business sector were conducted. The received statements were categorized and evaluated in terms of content. The results of the study allowed to formulate a conclusion that Polish managers posses average knowledge of the concept of the management of generational differences. On a declarative level they demonstrate moderately positive attitudes towards the management of generational differences, however on a factual level, they apply them rarely and in a coincidental and intiuitive way.
