#Nextchat RECAP: Gen X -- The Invisible Generation

On November 14, SHRM We Know Next chatted with Rebecca Hastings (@SHRMDiversedit) about Gen X- The Invisible Generation.

Gen X is the middle child of history and often plagued by negative stereotypes; however, in the workplace, they view themselves as hard workers, conscientious managers and fair leaders.  They are skilled at communicating up and down the ladder with Boomer and Gen Y peers and they possess both technical and political savvy. They've paid their dues in the workplace and expect to be considered for senior roles.  Workplace flexibility is important to this generation as they're typically taking care of both children and parents, in addition to their careers.

What's your view of Generation X?

In case you missed it, here are all the great tweets from the chat:
