Generation Vexed: Age-Related Culture Clashes in the Advancement Office and How to Avoid Them
DiConsiglio, John
CURRENTS, v35 n8 p18-24 Oct 2009
Welcome to the Generational Wars--a workplace skirmish over everything from ties and pantyhose to flex time and Facebook. For the first time in American history, three generations are now working desk-to-desk. And each brings wildly varying views on work and life into the office. The battle lines have been drawn. On one side are the Baby Boomers, the post-war generation born between 1946 and 1964. On the other hand, Generation X, born between 1965 and 1980, makes up 36 percent of the workforce. But the real conflict arises when the final ingredient is added to the generational stew: the much-hyped Millennials, born between 1981 and 2000. In this article, the author talks about age-related culture clashes in the advancement office and offers tips on how to avoid them.
