I would say employees with a sense of purpose are most productive. Is this the same as engagement (therefore the employee is motivated)? It’s a great question that really made me think. So I wanted to see if I could logically work through this. We have a tendency to toss these words around interchangeably at times.

Generations at Work: Working Hard or Hardly Working?

China Gorman

I’m not a big fan of over-generalizing the characteristics of the different generations in the workforce. It’s just too easy to say “Millennials are entitled;” “Baby Boomers aren’t good with social media;” or “Gen Xers are lazy.” Too easy, and not at all true. Any of it. So I read with some interest the results of a survey about the work habits of the generations that Paychex recently published.

For example: --Internet Explorer got overtaken by Chrome. Blockbuster got overtaken by Netflix, and at the retail level even by RedBox. --.
