Definition:

Baby Boomers is the name given to the generation of Americans who were born in a baby boom following World War II. The Boomers were born between 1944 and 1964. The oldest wave of the Baby Boomers is currently considering retirement options and looking at ways to make their elder years meaningful.

The youngest group of Baby Boomers are managing the Millennials and Generation-X groups of employees - and in some cases, being managed by them.
