Understanding Generational Differences: Keys to Managing and Communicating with a Multigenerational Workforce

Understanding Generational Differences: Keys to Managing and Communicating with a Multigenerational Workforce


October 2015

For the first time in history, four generations are in the workplace at the same time. They’re very different in mindset and expectations, and as a result, often have very different ideas as to what constitutes an ideal office or workspace. Those four generations include: • Veterans (sometimes also referred to as the “Silent” or “Traditionalist” generation): born between 1922 and 1945 • Baby Boomers: born between 1946 and 1964 • GenX (also referred to as Generation X or GenXers): born between 1965 and 1980 • GenY (also referred to as Generation Y, Millennials, or Echo Boomers): born between 1981 and 2000
