The purpose of this article is to provide a big picture of the work-life values held by each generation, and to show how the variety of work-life benefits can provide solutions for career planning dilemmas. The work/life movement started with the workers at the bottom in all kinds of work places. The effect was that decision makers at the top had to scramble to make sense of what was happening, and they were not sure how to deal with it. In addition, work/life benefits, while created with one age cohort in mind, have had a spill-over effect to everyone in the work force. With the new work/life policies have come increased satisfaction of employees, customers and clients, along with improved work place morale. Many of the work/life programs and policies are desired by all the generational groups, especially the flexible hours and paid time off, instead of vacation/sick days.
