Do you ever wonder if all human beings are created equally? I believe we are, because I think that we all have similar needs.  Or do we?  We all need to feel a sense of belonging. We need to feel we contribute to something meaningful. And we need a sense of independence, even though most of us like interdependence – relying on each other for support.

Why do I ponder this question? Well, I am fascinated by the thought that we are all in this together and that we all share things in common.

In a work setting, when it comes to employee engagement, we need to reflect on whether the younger generation needs something different than the baby boomers do…or have the baby boomers just forgotten what they really need or want? Or, maybe, older employees wait for the employer to work it out for them.

Regardless of which it is, what’s true, for sure, is that we’re all created equally, but we’re all different, also.
