Generational conflict is one of the last bastions of acceptable discrimination in today's workplace. Each generation has different beliefs, expectations, values, learning styles, and desires. These result in a strong tendency for them to adopt different work habits. Managing employees of several generations is not an easy task, but it is the reality of the business world today.

In order to truly create a cohesive workplace, managers must encourage employees to view generational difference as a valuable strength rather than a weakness."@en ;
