Generational differences in work ethics and values of workplace
Faisal Ashraf, Abou Bakar Javed
The study of generational differences is a subject of interest to many researchers, organizations and practitioners. The purpose of this study was to analyze changes in the work ethic, values and means of intergenerational communication - the experiences of baby boomers, generations X and Y in the workplace, and to analyze their experiences of creation of ideas, belief systems, norms and values. Most research on this subject has been conducted in the context of intergenerational differences in workplaces in Western countries. The socio-economic and political experience of the country is different. My research aims to understand the differences in ethics, values and workplace communication that have been passed down from generation to generation in the context of Pakistan's socio-economic and political conditions. Pakistan's experience in forming values and ideas of different generations is different from that of Western countries. There is no generational difference in terms of quality of work. There are differences in clothing preferences and communication in punctuality. Baby boomers and Gen X have more knowledge because of their experience, while Generation Y and Gen Y are experts in the use of technology. Taking both of these qualities into account can bring huge benefits to the business, but can also help employees develop good interpersonal skills. Generation Y uses informal literary language, while baby boomers and Gen X tend to write information using words and complete sentences. Employees of all ages see rewards and recognition as incentives.
