Baby Boomers, Millennials, and Generation Z

The HR department not only has to deal with the significant differences Baby Boomers (who are working in later years far more than their predecessors) vs. the Millennials or the up and coming Generation Z. Kids coming out of college today never knew a world without smartphones or the Internet, expect immediate answers at Google speed, can work anywhere, whereas Baby Boomers may have a more challenging time giving up a dedicated work space with their family photo on their desk … And then there are the Life Stage differences for the employees who are raising young children, seeking affordable housing, not too many hour drive from work, and the aging Baby Boomers who can’t handle a two-story walk-up office or lack of privacy once they get to the office.
