Optimizing Workplace Across Five Generations of Scientists - Challenges and Rewards Tanya Fogg   |   added on Mar 17, 2011    |    United States To visualize molecules, do you use a ball-and-stick-kit or modeling software? In today's workforce, most of us work with colleagues that span at least three generations and each has different assumptions about how the world works. The likelihood that we'll misunderstand a co-worker’s behavior is high.
