What we know about the Xers is that they feel rather “squeezed” between the baby boomers and the Gen Ys. There are fewer of them, by sheer numbers, than in either of the other two groups, so they are always in the minority. They also are now of the age when they are often responsible for younger children at home and may not be as mobile, and so may be less able to take promotions that require relocations, or less willing to work late hours or participate in social after-work activities. This can lead to some type of additional separation among the groups. Gen X also grew up in a world where downsizing and mismanagement were common, and so they don’t often trust the “corporate-speak.” Gen X highly values having options, and options often trump money or status. They tend to resent the boomers who see their way as the only way, and the fact that the boomers are hanging around in the workplace a lot longer than anyone thought they would, especially in leadership roles. However, Gen X brings strong relationships into the workplace and teaches others how to leverage them for powerful results. They also embrace technology as they have practically grown up with the personal computer and the cell phone. They are also not afraid of change as it relates to the work world, because it has done nothing but change since they entered it. They appreciate diversity and understand its value; they are instinctively collaborative, are usually quite flexible, and tend to ask questions instead of making statements as their boomer counterparts do.
