To guide the study, the following questions have been developed: 1. Are there generational differences in the beliefs about what it means to work hard, take initiative, or contribute to the organization? 2. Are there differences in the expectations of a work and life balance among the four generations of employees? 3. Do differences among generational cohorts exist in the expectations about compensation and rewards? 4. Does each generation take a different approach to career development? How do these approaches differ?
