Typically any work place or an office will have people from various generations. Sometimes the generation gap brings in more advantages and sometimes not. For example the baby boomer generation may not appreciate it very much to use the modern gizmos and they even find it very difficult to adjust to the modern work culture.
They come from an age were work place was more respectful and seniors were respected and also given importance. They dealt with a lot of discipline and specific work patterns. The current day work scenario is exactly upside down and the baby boomers are stuck with a harsh migration process to deal with. The current day work scenario demands people to be more innovative and think differently. There are very few layers in hierarchy and the concept of seniority is almost gone from the corporate. People are judged more for their work and innovation rather than their experience. It is an age where what you do matters and not how much you do. The baby boomers of course have had it tough all this while.
The solutions are more for baby boomers because it is not possible to change the existing work culture and go back to good old times. It is only going to change more and get tougher from here on and the best solution is to prepare the older generation to take up more challenging tasks and get them used to the modern work culture. The generation gap can be bridged with a positive attitude rather than use negative influences.
