No generation is one monolithic group of people who all behave exactly the same way. So why are we so hung up on generations in the first place? It’s actually important to consider what makes them tick because this is the first time in history that five distinct generations are in the workplace simultaneously. Learning about people’s different potential identity markers can be a helpful way to better interact with each other.And members of each generation do have traits that differentiate them — a combination of characteristics largely based on the circumstances in which each cohort came of age.
