Five reasons why the Gen X - Gen Y divide is the next talent management bridge.
Generation Y are not just younger versions of Generation X. Generation X look at Generation Y and see themselves. Gen X don’t see themselves as old, so when they look at younger men and women they resonate with much of their youthful exuberance. The consequence is that Gen X see an idealized younger version of themselves in Gen Y and treat Gen Y as if they are just younger Gen X’ers. In reality, Gen Y have been formed by a very different world to the world of Gen X’s youth.
