Who are the Four Generations?


The 5th generation is merging into the Four Generation culture and workplace.

The four contemporary generations are known as: the “Traditionalist” generation, the “Baby Boomers,” “Generation X,” and the “Millennials.” People of these four generations were born in the 20th century and are currently working and interacting in the 21st century workplace. Although many sources disagree slightly on the years defining each generation, this blog will stand by these years: Traditionalists (prior to 1945); Boomers (1946-1964); Generation X (1965-1981) and Millennials (1982-2000).

Editor’s Note: A new generation, born after 2001, is known as the Homeland Generation (some may call this generation “i-Gen.”)
