Nowadays, the aging of the workforce is an obvious phenomenon, and, at the workplace, the Baby Bommers and the Y generation will have to work together. So, the professionals in the human resources domain are forced to find ways to homogenize, to retain and to keep active the members of these generations. The purpose of this paper is to analyze the literature in the field of reverse mentoring as well as to identify best practices implemented by different successful companies. To achieve this aim, the secondary study was conducted in two directions: (1) an analyze of the reverse mentoring as a mean of transferring knowledge; (2) a presentation of a generational profile. The premise behind this study is that, given the aging of the labor force and the major developments in technology, a viable solution would be to facilitate the transfer of experience and knowledge between different generations of employees. In this study, reverse mentoring is considered as a tool that facilitates the transfer and diffusion of knowledge at the organization level.
