Understanding Gen X in the workplace

To the members of Generation X, success doesn't necessarily mean accumulating power or calling every shot. So-called "Xers" tend to seek a sensible balance between their work and personal lives. Companies interested in 21st century competitiveness must provide that balance, according to a survey of 1,200 Gen Xers. Baby Boomer Charlotte Shelton and her Xer daughter Laura Shelton examine the attitudes of Gen X professional women as they look to the future. getAbstract recommends this as a heads-up for Boomer-age leaders and their Gen X colleagues. Now is the time to think about the work environment you must create to recruit and retain young talent. And if you are an up-and-coming Xer, now is the time to decide what you want to up-and-come to.

Tells of the latest group of young female workers and why they feel disillusioned with the workplace

Charlotte and Laura Shelton's The Next Revolution: What Gen X Women Want At Work And How Their Boomer Bosses Can Help Them Get It tells of the latest group of young female workers and why they feel disillusioned with the workplace, caught between a 'go for it' ideal and the realities of the modern corporate establishment. The Sheltons surveyed over a thousand of these women and interviewed others about their work experiences: these interviews blend with insights about the differing views of two generations to show how it affects the workplace - and what can be done to prevent the migration of talent.

Amazing Read

The NeXt Revolution is an awesome book for any woman in the workplace. As a Gen Xer it really helped but my work situation into perspective. It's very insightful, and not just a book exclusively for women. My husband really related to the workplace narratives in the book. I recommend the book for anyone new to the workplace or frustrated with their job.
