Field Trip: Five Generations at Work

Ian? He’s of Generation X. Erin is squarely in the Millennial camp. Today on Field Trip, they explore the differences between the five different generations currently represented in the labor force: Traditionalists, Baby Boomers, Generation X, Millennials, and Generation Z.

  • Why understanding the characteristics of each will help administrators and district leaders communicate better and tap the strengths that each generation brings
  • How to foster intergenerational collaboration and “reverse mentoring”
  • Why this all matters to school culture and how it impacts hiring and retention

This interview with Ian Halperin, Executive Director of Community Relations at Wylie ISD and Erin McCann, Director of Communications and Public Relations at Crandall ISD is one that every education leader should hear.
