What are the generations in the workplace?

  • Silent Traditionalists (1928–1945): They opt for face-to-face communication, and like to have an agenda or memorandum in their hand. They are known for their company loyalty and the practice of working at one place their entire career.
  • Baby Boomers (1946–1964): As they want in-person interactions, they much prefer to meet in a conference room than to attend a conference call or do a webinar. They can sometimes be less supportive of flexible work policies as for most of their careers they did not have the technology available to work remotely.
  • Generation X (1965–1980): They want less supervision and the ability to get down to work. Generation X wants more physical and psychological space in which to work. They often see themselves as independent, self-sufficient and out of the mainstream. They are considered the most entrepreneurial generation.
  • Millennials (1983–1996): They prefer to email or text rather than walk across the room to chat with someone. Their emphasis is on efficiency and ease. Millennials grew up in an era in which children received a lot more attention and coaching.
  • Generation Z (1997–present): They find technology critical to communication. They are the most diverse generation in U.S. history and lean towards more inclusive communities and policies.
