In my previous Blog on The Millennial generation, I addressed how cultural and social attitudes such as that of our peers are marked by the year we were born in. Millennial students like learning opportunities, they follow honest leaders, and they have a good sense of humor. The Millennial believes it is â€śbeastâ€ť to be smart and identify with the values of those of their parents. Millennial are easily mesmerized by new technology, but what are the Millennials like at work?
There are at least four generations that work and live together today.
- The Millennial represented by those born in 1982, and are now 30 years old and younger.
- The Generation X whose workforce is between the age range of 25 and 47.
- The Baby Boomers born between 1946 and 1964, the oldest are now 66 years old.
- Then the one called The Silent Generation whose age range between 67 and 87 years old.
So, how is the environment affected in the workplace when you have groups of people with different values and distinct personalities working together? What is it like to work with individuals with different ideas and ways of getting things done? What are the problems that can arise, from such collision of generations?
