Let’s compare the work performance: Baby Boomers vs Generation X vs Generation Y.
Quick reminder: baby boomers are those born after WWII (after 1945) up to the 1960s. Generation X is the generation born between the 1960s and early 1980s. Generation Y – also known as Millennials – were welcomed into the wonderful world between the mid-1980s and early 2000s.
Ernst & Young did a study on the different work traits of these generations and The Economist displayed the results in a very interesting videographic.
From the videographic, it is clear that the different generations cannot survive without each other. They complement each other. Everybody wins!
By the way, you Generation Xers who had your first giggle in the 1960s, did you know that the world population has doubled since you were born?
