Trendsetters

Older and younger workers have always disagreed when it comes to acceptable work habits. And with the rise of innovative technologies for working, this disparity has increased significantly. This article discusses the different approaches that today's older and younger workers have towards their work. In doing so, it describes how the rise of the Internet and the proliferation of innovative communications products have instilled in younger workers a belief that they can work whenever and wherever they want, a belief that often irks many senior workers who climbed the ranks during the years when computers were not available to help them accomplish more in fewer hours worked. It also explains how the beliefs of both older and younger workers influence each other and how these beliefs are actually generating more congenial working relationships.
