How does the generational cohort you are born into effect your work habits? Is the stereotype that older generational cohorts (e.g. Baby Boomers) exhibit higher levels of work ethics than younger generations (e.g. Millennials) really true?

This session will explore these questions as well as:

  • Events that have shaped Baby Boomers vs. Generation X vs. Millennials and the years that reflect each generation
  • Implications of these generational differences on future generations entering the workforce
