Palabras clave: capital humano, fuerza laboral multigeneracional, generación X, generación Y, baby boomers

Resumen

Uno de los principales retos para las organizaciones hoy es lograr una óptima integración de los colaboradores al considerar las dificultades implícitas en la diversidad generacional de equipos con distintas motivaciones, estilos de trabajo, expectativas y conductas. Objetivo. Revisar la taxonomía de las generaciones en el ámbito laboral a través de un análisis bibliométrico en el tiempo y desde la perspectiva de distintos países. Metodología.
Se analizaron 293 documentos recopilados de las bases de datos Web of Science y Scopus en el período comprendido entre 1957 y 2020; para ello se utilizó el software R, Biblioshiny, con interfaz Bibliometrix. Resultados. Los principales hallazgos revelan un aumento significativo de estudios a través del tiempo, así como el hecho de que las generaciones y los períodos que las determinan tienen una definición heterogénea de acuerdo con el país en el que se estudian. Conclusiones. Para efectos de un mejor y más eficiente diseño de estrategias de capital humano, las organizaciones deben ser conscientes de las diferencias generacionales.
