The theory is that each generation shares particular life experiences that subsequently affect their values and attitudes.
Boomers, defined as persons born between 1946 and 1964, grew up in an era of relative job security; so they value dedication, diligence and organizational loyalty.
Generation X (or GenExers), defined as persons born between 1965 and 1980, grew up in an era characterized by globalized production and layoffs; they place higher value on work-life balance and family.
Millennials (sometimes referred to as “Generation Y” or “Nexters”), defined as persons born between 1981 and 2001, grew up with technology and are most comfortable with it.

"People are much deeper than stereotypes. That's the first place our minds go. Then you get to know them and you hear their stories, and you say, 'I'd have never guessed.'"

Carson Kressley

The changing economic climate, higher cost of living, technological updates, and family makeup have changed the culture of the Millennial generation. Recognize these differences and be willing to compromise your own work style.

"Boomers are older and hence, occupy positions higher up the organizational hierarchy and are more committed to the organization. They also are more likely to have practical reasons to value loyalty and security, such as home mortgages, children about to enter college and impending retirement concerns."
