Abstract


As leaders of the accounting profession age, the face of its workforce changes. Generation X and Millennial employees are now in leadership positions. Mix those generations with Traditionalists and Baby Boomers, and the result is a firm comprised of an interesting blend of individuals.
Think about the technologies Traditionalists and Baby Boomers grew up with – radio, television and the fax machine were still developing, as they started and built their businesses. Now, those in this age group are using computers, cell phones, the internet and other variations of these technologies. The workplace is changing at an ever-increasing pace, and everything seems new to them. Now, consider Generation X and Millennials. The same technologies that are new to Traditionalists and Boomers are a part of life for the younger generations – and have been for some time now. To effectively manage those in today’s workforce, firm leaders need a comprehensive understanding of the differences between generations and how to best utilize their unique knowledge and viewpoints.
The first step to effectively manage and develop this workforce is to understand what makes people “tick,” when it comes to work style, motivation and the technologies they use each day. When considering generational differences, it is important to remember that while trends and research suggest each generation has unique characteristics, not everyone within a given generation is exactly the same.
The research paper is an attempt to highlight the various dimensions of intergenerational trends
