Are There Really Generational Differences in the Workplace?

The working environment has gone through a major transformation over the last decade, particularly in terms of population in the workforce. We have today workplaces composed of five generations:

  • Traditionalists—born before 1946.
  • Baby Boomers—born between 1946 and 1964.
  • Generation X—born between 1965 and 1976.
  • Generation Y, or Millennials—born between 1977 and 1997.
  • Generation Z—born after 1997.

There is a lot of talk around how each generation is different than other and new generations have different expectations as it relates to their work experiences, etc.

So, naturally, together with our science partner ScienceforWork, we turned to research for some validation. Turns out all the affirmations we keep hearing have no solid theory or data behind them!

What do generations want in the workplace?

What we all want… To be seen, to be heard, to be valued and to be recognized for our unique contribution!
