  • In considering the workplace needs of the Millennial generation employers should keep in min the group of people that will be taking over the work place. It is stated that by the year 2025, Millennials will replace the retiring members of the Baby Boomer generation and become the majority leader in the workplace (Putre, 2013, p. 38). At the time of the switch, employers will need to consider increasing collaboration within the workplace, improving face-to-face communication and offering more technology to keep members of this generation. This generation is not interested in climbing their way up the ladder if they are not comfortable in their job. They will hold several jobs within their lifetime.

  • Baby Boomers are the generation of people born between 1946 and 1965; they range from age 40 to their late 60’s (Carter & Simmons, 2007). Unlike Millennials, Baby Boomers are described as “idealistic, competitive, questioning authority, and desire to put their own stamp on things” (Niles, 2011, p. 48). The children of the Baby Boomers are members of the Millennial generation.
