Phase 3 Individual Project
The Four Generations in the Work Place
Currently there are four different generations in today’s work force,
different generations working in today’s work force, there are four
different perspectives being brought to the table. This means that there
are four different work ethics and four different ways of completing tasks.
In my report we are going to be discussing all four generations, what
each bring to the work force and how it can benefit our company.
Let’s begin with the

to their companies and they expect that the company in turn is loyal to
them. They are instilled with the ideals that making sacrifices for your
career is a necessity; in short they have the ideal work ethic in the eyes
of any company (Kane, Baby Boomer, 2010). This generation is very

sufficient and can allows meet the dead lines given to them. The
are a generation that really make great managers or hold roles
of authority extremely well.
Next is what is called generation
this generation is the

grow up with computers and technology; they depend upon this
knowledge greatly. They are very comfortable using things like PDA’s, cell
phones, emails, and black berry’s they are the generation that works to
live not lives to work. (Kane, Generation X, 2010) This generation brings
