Discover the valuable skills Millennials and Boomers can learn from each other
There has been a lot of buzz in recent years about the different work styles of Millennials and Baby Boomers. But, whatever generation you come from, and no matter where you are in your marketing career, if you put aside your differences for a moment, you’ll realize there is a great deal to be learned from one another.
A recent Washington Post article revealed why Millennial and Boomer women should be friends and how this friendship can impact their careers. While decades may separate the peers, they each bring valuable knowledge and skills to the workplace. Millennials are tech savvy, creative and enterprising, cleverly using the tools at their fingertips to be productive. Workers in their 50s and 60s learned how to succeed first-hand, climbing the corporate ladder, rung by rung, through years of perseverance and hard work.
If differences were overlooked, Baby Boomers could be role models for the younger generation and Millennials would have the opportunity teach their more senior peers how to use technology to work more effectively. And, among other shared interests, both groups share the desire for work-life balance.
