Managing and Coping with People from Different Generations
The Johnsons show how each generation has been influenced by major historical events, social trends and cultural phenomena of their time, shaping their ideas about company loyalty, work ethic and the definition of a job well done. Each generation has widely differing sets of expectations and perceptions about what the working environment will provide them, how they should behave as employees, how managers will manage them and how they will manage others. Understanding these generational characteristics gives managers an edge in everything from interviewing new hires and designing work stations and schedules, to planning meeting agendas and projects and assembling efficient teams.
