Does the workforce in your firm have significant generational differences among lawyers and/or support staff?

Through the study we did for a presentation to Iowa Managing partners and firm Administrators, we learned that there are wide differences between the generations. Baby boomers, for example, tend to be workaholics, whereas younger people (Millennials) demand more of a work-life balance. More than ever before, generational awareness is necessary to foster understanding and better communication among workers in a law firm, whether they be lawyers or support staff, or both.
