Abstract

This paper explores cross-culture generational phenomena, specifically within the context of the workplace, using Turkey and the US as comparisons. In a short discussion of popular press and academic publications, we compare perceptions of generational groupings in both cultures. In doing so, we find both surprising similarities and differences. We advocate that more research in the area of international generational phenomena occur in order to support or refute our preliminary statements.
