What different generations look for in a job
Flexible work arrangements and work-life balance
Gen Xers have worked hard since joining the workforce and are now in their prime child-rearing ages, so family is first in their lives. They are also a generation of working parents, so they seek, and often need, assistance from their employers in order to have the time or means to care for both growing children and aging parents. Because their lives are often filled with the stress of work and life, they seek opportunities for balance and ways to recharge their batteries.
