This week’s Working Lunch Wednesday will wind up our three-week series on The Generations with a look at “Baby Boomers on the Job: The Shockwave at Work.”
Named for their huge numbers growing up in the post-war era of the 1940s, '50s and '60s, the Baby Boomers--sometimes called “the Shockwave” that hit the U.S. population--were the healthiest, wealthiest and most robust of any generation before them, and they grew up with a bright outlook on the future. Facing retirement in a difficult economy, many find themselves still working – sometimes after their own jobs were phased out by technology, or by economic conditions, and they may find themselves working for people their children’s age in an environment that is completely new to them.
Come chat with an expert, author and professor on the subject on Wednesday to find out what makes this generation tick when they’re at work--or, if you’re among their enormous ranks, how you as a Baby Boomer can work alongside the younger generations.
Working Wednesdays Live Chat, where you can chat with Work/Life coach Melissa Schenker, as well as others in the job community who are dealing with these and other job-related issues.
