These employees demand a sense of autonomy and purpose in their job role, like to be held accountable, enjoy feedback for their work, and value mentorship opportunities and skill training at work.Generation X comprises individuals born between 1965 and 1985 and is the generation that came right before the millennials. They are characteristically independent, self-reliant, self-sufficient, resourceful, and hard-working. Generation X is characterized by their capability for self-care and had a tougher childhood than millennials or Generation Y.
