In each of our workplaces, we find peers who are from different generations:

The Veterans/Traditionalists
Born between 1925 and 1944

The Baby Boomers
Born between 1945 and 1964

Generation X
Born between 1965 and 1980

Generation Y/Millenials
Born between 1981 and 2000

When we understand the characteristics, values and motivations of other generations there is a greater appreciation of what everyone brings to the workplace. We hope that this web site will help you reflect on your own situation and offer you resources to help you take advantage of what a multigenerational workplace can bring.

Is it possible to paint a portrait of an entire generation? Like a straggling army, it has no clear beginning or end. And yet each generation has some features that are more significant than others; each has a quality as distinctive as a man's accent, each makes a statement to the future, each leaves behind a picture of itself.
-Time Magazine, Nov 5, 1951
