Can we all work together? Generational Differences in the Workplace

4-generationsFor my nurse readers:

Generational differences in staff are something to think about when working or even changing jobs. Baby Boomers, Generation X’ers, Generation Y/Millenials are all working together on various units/areas of hospitals. Are we all working together as a cohesive staff? Or are we all just together working on the same shift? There is a huge difference between working together and just working at the same time. Generational differences are real and apparent in the hospital setting, and we hope that they aren’t impacting patient care!
