ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a study into the ways different generations interact within the workplace, conducted by Penna in partnership with the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and PeopleMetrics. More than 5,500 employees across Europe were surveyed and included focus groups with senior human resources (HR) managers. The survey found that employers' attitudes to social responsibility were of much more importance to baby boomers.
