Generational Fracture

It has always been that older people blame change on younger people and younger people blame lack of progress on older people. While there has always been separation between older and younger generations the generational fracture that has occurred between Baby Boomers and Millennials seems to be more pronounced and talked about than between other generations.

In business, managers, mostly from the Baby Boom, are writing books, articles and social media posts regarding how hard it is to hire and manage those Millennials. Experts are talking about how to redesign, re-engineer the entire hiring, training, and retention process in a way that Millennials will want to come to work. Type in “how to recruit millennials” and you will see 414,000 results in Google.

Is it true that there is a Generational Fracture between Millennials and other generations? Could it be that there is not a millennial problem but a bunch of bad managers and recruiters? I think so. #generationalfracture
