June 11, 2017

We collectively in the business world (and here at WorkXO for sure), think and write and observe and opine about generations a lot, but always with a particular focus on Millennials (as you know we wrote a book about their impact on the workplace). So in this episode of the Culture Chat, we wanted to talk to someone who could address the other side of the equation - baby boomers - but specifically around the idea of baby boomers working much longer, how they want to transfer their deep and historical knowledge inside the workplace, and how corporate culture could build in different kinds of structures for sharing experiences in both directions between older and younger generations.

Listen to this conversation with Alex Assaley, CEO of AFS 401(k) Retirement Services. Our big question for today's conversation was, "In what ways will Baby Boomers working longer have an impact on today's workplace?"
