Overview/Description
Many of the same influences have shaped the lives and work experiences of the newer generations – the Millennials and the Generation Xers. Widespread Internet usage, for example, means that, typically, these generations are adept in technology. Globalization is another shaping influence, with the result that both generations value diversity.

By using strategies that recognize the differences, managers can get the best from each generation. This course describes best practices and successful techniques for managing Millennial and Generation X employees.
