Generations at work – are there any differences?

by on April 25, 2013

One of the recurrent themes in our data has been the notion of ‘generations’ (e.g. Baby Boomers and Millennials) and the ways in which using ‘generations’ enables certain conversations about people of different ages in relation to work.

There is quite an established literature examining ‘generations’, much of it practitioner publications, and suggesting significant differences e.g. in work motivation between these age cohorts (cohorts which are not consistently defined). So it is interesting to see news in this article of a report from Pricewaterhouse Coopers across 18 countries which apparently found very little difference between the attitudes and behaviours of younger workers and older workers.
