I've been an avid reader of Tim Wright's special package of articles on Examiner.com this week about generations in the workplace. Today, Wright notes that the differences among the four generations in the workplace are getting a lot of attention, and all sorts of differences keep cropping up. But he argues for simplifying the argument to only two differences: perceptions of time and space. "Everyone works in time and space," he writes. "Not everyone approaches either or both the same way."
