What is the generation gap at work?

Four, and possibly five, generations work side-by-side in today’s workplaces:

  1. Veterans (born 1930–1945),
  2. Baby Boomers (1946– 1964),
  3. Generation Xers (1965–1976),
  4. Generation Yers (1977- 1990), and
  5. Millennials (born since 1991)

Although each person is an individual with his/her own personality, shared experiences shaped the generations and influenced their work styles. Recognising the strengths and values of each one promotes respect for diversity and fosters cohesiveness within the workplace.
