This article will be archived in Q3 2023. Please refer to our "Configure Engagement feature settings" article for information about System Group Types, including Generation.
Generational system groups are groups that contain employees from different generations, and can be used in engagement survey result reporting. These groups are automatically created for your organization if 1) birthdays are programmed for employees, and 2) the 'Generation' option is enabled in Settings > Group Management > System.
Below is a list of birth years that make up each generation in the survey report. We automatically calculate engagement by generation based on the Birth Date field provided on the employee record. The following birth years define each generation:
- 1928 - 1945: Silent Generation
- 1946 - 1964: Baby Boomers
- 1965 - 1981: Generation X
- 1982 - 1996: Millennials
- 1997 on: Generation Z
