The plight of the baby boomer in an increasingly millennial-focused workplace is appearing more regularly in recent times.
After spending years as the most coveted generation, baby boomers often feel as if they’re getting pushed aside and out of prominent jobs.
Today, many baby boomers find themselves reporting to supervisors younger than themselves.
In an economy that is constantly changing, the way people work is also changing thus baby boomers need to change along with the time to avoid being pushed into retirement.
Aubrey Masango chats to ChangeCreator co-founder, author and consultant Stanley Beckett to give ideas on how baby boomers can adapt in the workplace.

And are now sitting at an age where they are told they are no longer valuable to society.— Stanley Beckett, Author and consultant - ChangeCreator
