Description: Unlike any time in our nation’s history, multiple generations are employed in the workplace.  We are working alongside co-workers old enough to be our parents and at the same time employees young enough to be our children.  Senior partners are planning for retirement and adults born in the last decade of the 20th Century are entering the workforce.  Every generation has a different view of the world.  That view is dictated by national and world events, public opinion and viewpoints.  Attitudes and expectations have a great effect on each generation’s view of the workplace.  What is important to a 65-year-old employee will probably not have nearly the importance to a 21-year-old employee.  Conflict is inevitable and production and morale will rapidly decline without cooperation throughout the company.  Once differences are acknowledged and accepted, and respect is given to the employee as well as the strengths of each group, common ground and shared values combine to encourage and increase productivity.
