How wide is the generation gap in your workplace?
How wide do you think it will be in a couple of years, when Millennials will comprise half of the world’s employees?

Diane’s recent guest column in Forward magazine, “Four Generations, One Workplace,” outlines some general advice on updating management style, educating employees, and instituting new hiring practices—all with the goal of keeping your organization vital and relevant.
