A comparison of the workplace expectations of baby boomers and millennials reveals some interesting findings. While mature workers seek an income (or nest egg) to live on and want to make productive use of their time, for the young workforce, a job is all about career and skill development, and exposure to cutting edge technology. But they also have several things in common, such as a desire to contribute to society through work; a preference for flexible work arrangements and an appreciation of the social connections formed at the workplace. Generation X, on the other hand, is more concerned about the corporate ladder and compensation. How to encourage older workers? Convince them that they can still contribute. Managing the aging workforce is only part of the story. To ensure access to world-class talent and turn their human resources into a competitive advantage, organizations need to configure their workplaces to meet the future needs of their people.
