Show : Generation Blend - Bridging the Generation Gap

Guest : Rob Salkowitz, author of Generation Blend

Aired :August 17th 2008 

Michael Schultz

One of our missing shows that recently came back to us.  

With three generations of people in the workforce it's important for all of them to understand each other in order to be successful.  Author Rob Salkowitz walks us through how technology can help baby boomers, Gen-Xers and "Digital Natives" work together.  He shares with us the different approaches to technology each group has, and obstacles we all face when trying to effectively communicate across generation gaps.  This is of growing importance as more digital natives start companies and will need experienced, seasoned guidance from other generations, and possibly when they hire people old enough to be their parents!

Rob Salkowitz is a writer and consultant specializing in the social implications of new technology. In addition to Generation Blend, he is co-author of Listening to the Future (with Dan Rasmus), a collection of white papers on the intersection of globalization, demographics, networked connectivity and transparency on the future of the workplace, produced for Microsoft in 2005-2007. He has worked with Microsoft, HP and other global businesses to communicate the benefits of high-tech products to enterprise customers. In 2003, Rob joined the board of Older Adults Technology Services (OATS), a New York City-based non-profit dedicated to providing technology training to older adults looking to participate in their communities or re-enter the workforce.
