Abstract

One of the most controversial issues in organizational management, is the way managers interact with human resource and employees. The passage of time and changes in lifestyles and the development of new technologies and communication in the twenty-first century, has resulted in changes in today's generation compared to previous generations. Management of this new generation necessitates that its new characteristics be taken into account; since the current management practices are set according to the features of previous generation. Given that the new generation under discussion, are now at the age production and entry into the labor market, the study of such changes becomes significant. This interdisciplinary study (Sociology - Management) after addressing the key concepts in this field, sets out to examine generational changes through a descriptive-analytical approach and finally proposes new solutions in the field of organizational management with a view to the characteristics of the new generation.
