Understanding Generation Gaps
While having various cultures in one workplace can present communication problems and conflicts, the benefits of such a variety in the workplace outweigh it. The workplace can present challenges to management in terms of handling the different generations present. As older workers delay retiring and younger workers are entering the workforce, the work environment has become a patchwork of varying perspectives and experiences, all valuable to say the least.

What is the generation gap at work?
Four, and possibly five, generations work side-by-side in today’s workplaces:
- Veterans (born 1930–1945),
- Baby Boomers (1946– 1964),
- Generation Xers (1965–1976),
- Generation Yers (1977- 1990), and
- Millennials (born since 1991)
Although each person is an individual with his/her own personality, shared experiences shaped the generations and influenced their work styles. Recognising the strengths and values of each one promotes respect for diversity and fosters cohesiveness within the workplace.
