Generation gaps in perspectives, attitudes, and behaviors are nothing new, but they can be difficult to reconcile in the workplace. Paying lack attention to the generational gap will create less efficiency to the organization. The critical management skills will involve understanding generational differences in order to strengthen work relationships between and among employees especially between Baby Boomers, Generation X and Generation Y. To get this picture it is important to determine how to maximize the performance of younger and older employees to understand the unique backgrounds from where they are coming from. There are major five types of generations in the population. Traditionalist, Baby boomers, Generation X, Generation Y and Generation Z. But in the workforce structure Traditionalist and the Generation Z are excluded. Traditionalist are almost retired and the Generation Z still not representing in the workforce.
