In a work setting, it is important to surround yourself with familiar people who have the same interests and ethics as you. Usually, this comes from people of the same age or generation whom you go out with to have drinks after work. While there is nothing wrong with such a setting, it is also equally important to engage with people younger or older than you. Most of the young generation may find this taxing, talking to people who are like parents to them, and the older generation may find themselves out of depth with the modern lingo. However, interactions are necessary to achieve a common goal and in a multigenerational workplace, there could be challenges ahead.
