In case you missed it… Building Employee Financial Well-Being
February 28, 2017

Most employers today have up to four generational cohorts of employees working for their organizations, each with very distinct characteristics. The career-focused, loyal and individualistic Baby Boomers (1946 – 1965) are on the tail end of their careers, or already retired, and will represent about 15% of the workforce by 2020. Generations X and Y are the largest generational cohorts in today’s workforce. Gen Xers (1966 – 1979), once deemed the “slacker generation,” are entrepreneurial, self-reliant and globally minded. Gen Y (1980 – 1995), or “Millennials,” are a generation as large as the Baby Boomers and are group-oriented, idealistic and socially conscious, says Trish Miller, Consulting Actuary at Willis Towers Watson. Gen Z (1996 – 2010) is the first generation that is “technology native,” and will likely have about 10 to 14 jobs before age 40.
