This chapter explores the question about whether generations differ in the ways they approach work, their interest in serving the public, and their time spent in jobs as well as organizations. It examines generational characteristics and their possible influence on individual's career histories. The chapter explores issues surrounding recruitment and retention of the next generation of workers. It describes that problems presented by an aging workforce have led to increased attention to managing multiple generations in the workplace, partly as a means of effecting smooth transitions of responsibility from older and retiring workers to younger, less experienced workers. Due to the increased attention on these generational differences and the observations regarding the attitudes of the younger generation, personnel managers need to know of the substantive differences in how particular generations approach work. The chapter illustrates that Baby Boomers are similar to the younger generations in their holistic approach to work-life balance.
