Four generations are in the US workforce, for the first time ever, with different values, work-style and life-style demands:
- Veterans born before 1946 (*13% of the Workforce)
- The Baby Boomers 1946 – 1964 (*26.4% of the Workforce)
- Gen X 1965 - 1980 (*19.8% of the Workforce)
- Millennials/Gen Y 1981 on (*27.7% of the Workforce)
They are all working together and often colliding as their paths cross. No wonder flexible working and virtual officing is taking off.
