Building a team from different generations can be a distinctive valuable human resource sand benefit from over six decades of perspectives, experience and insights. However, in order to use this potential in a proper manner managers need to know some features that distinguish members of different generations. Members of each generation possess a particular set of values, attitudes and behaviors to the workplace.
