When working with multigenerational groups, it can be helpful to be aware of the cultural backgrounds, goals, life influencers and behaviours.

This infographic helps to summarise the differences between Traditionalists (the Silent Generation), Baby Boomers, Generation X and Generation Y (Millenials, Echo Boomers, Net Gen, Generation Why, Entitlement Generation)

Our goal is understand the strengths and differences of each generational groups to build successful organisations.

Of course, generalisations about generations are just that. Age defines a demographic, not a person. Ultimately, we need to get to know indviduals, not just make assumptions.
