The approach at workplace also varies. Baby boomers are much loyal to their managers and they always encourage job security, but Gen Y does not . The training styles therefore have to change so that the generational gaps are all addressed.
The key developmental areas of Gen Y are leadership, skills training and problem solving, but the former generations focused on leadership, team building and computer training.
Gen Y employees’ value dedication and dependability unlike the prior generations that insisted on trustworthiness and listening skills.
All the generations have gaps in understanding and their preferences towards values. Baby boomers prefer conventional methods and sophisticated values, but Gen Y prefers instant and trending methods that can convey values as well as achieve greater productivity.
With enormous differences between the generations, it is clear that their values, attitudes and approaches to work are not the same and these are still expected to vary in the upcoming generations. The millennial and generations in the past have made significant changes to the thought process of organization, but it is the current generation that has made rapid advancements in organizational culture.
