For the first time in American history, four generations of employees are in the workforce - causing cultural and generational friction.
Older workers - the traditionalists - are finding it hard to retire early. The post-war Baby Boomers, who have spent the last few decades running much of American Business - Generation x'ers, once thought to be slackers, now trying to fit in - and live up to their parents expectation - and the youngest workers - the so-called millenials, whose world view and techological prowess can be scary to other generations.
Today, Where We Live, workplace consultant Barbara Phillips talks about the challenges of a multi-generational workforce, and we'll have a roundtable discussion with workers from each group.
We'd like you to join the conversation - what are your cross generational workplace stories? What differences do you see? And how can you work together better? Add your suggestions, questions and comments below.
