Look around your company. What do you see? Is everyone around you roughly the same age? Or does it vary?
As Millennials and Gen Z continue to infiltrate the workforce, much attention has been given to attracting and retaining these young workers. But what about Baby Boomers and Gen X? Have we completely overlooked the older generations when it comes to hiring top talent?
