Dear :

Did you know that by 2020, 50% of the workforce will be millennials (PWC)?Adding to that, the labor force participation rate for people over 55 is higher than ever. A recent report by AARP found that 33% of baby boomers are delaying the age at which they plan to retire and half plan to work part time after retirement.

With older workers staying in the workforce longer and younger ones rushing to get in, the multi-generational workplace is creating new challenges to navigate. Employee/manager expectations, communications techniques, and the need for feedback are a few of the issues percolating amongst the generations. See links below for some more reading on the topic.

I would love to hear about your best tips for getting along with colleagues of different generations: please feel free to email me at, or connect with me on LinkedIn.

Have a fantastic fall!
