Research background: The article deals with the issue of intergenerational cooperation of different age categories. It follows up on the outputs of the research task “Intergenerational management to support digitization in construction” funded by TACR.
Purpose of the article: The aim of the article is to determine the main problems of intergenerational cooperation and to analyse the current situation from the point of view of solving the necessary changes by introducing digitization in the construction industry.
Methods: When modelling mutual cooperation between generations, it turns out that the key problem is the willingness to cooperate. Interpretation of the results obtained from the research was made through logical deduction and synthesis of previous knowledge in the field.
Findings & Value added: The findings of the article are in the form of determining the main attributes preventing effective intergenerational cooperation with the aim of sharing digital competencies. The outputs of the article are the cornerstone for the model of intergenerational cooperation based on improving communication between generations, mutual sharing of competencies and thus the use of the strengths of individual cooperating generations (digital competence vs. long-term experience in the field). The research project shows a way to deal with the situation in companies and offers a relatively simple solution that aims to improve intergenerational cooperation and sharing competencies in order to increase the competitiveness of companies. It also offers a way to make effective use of older employees and offer them job satisfaction.
