An excerpt

“Sometimes, employee’s workplace values can be at odds with each other, leaving staff dissatisfied with their colleagues’ work ethics. This means that if you try to appease staff by appealing to the wider cultural values of their generation, you may alienate other members of staff.”

“To find out how generational theory can be applied to the education sector, we undertook a survey of teaching staff from schools around the UK to find out each age category’s attitudes towards teaching and what motivates them at work.”
