How Do Different Generations Show Up in The Workplace?


It is just the natural progression of the generational formation cycle. Generations are formed in approximately 20 year cycles where their worldviews and values are shaped by historical and cultural events occurring at different stages of development.

The conclusions and corresponding decisions made as a result of the event shapes and inform each generation. That is how you end up with different generations with the classic “gaps” that we so often refer to.
