How are Generations Calculated?

For Engagement Survey data, Quantum Workplace groups employees into generations based on their birth date

If your organization provides employee date of birth  in your employee demographics file (as part of your survey prep-work with your CSM), you will be able to examine how your Engagement Survey data varies by generation. 


For surveys that were built starting November 11, 2019 or after, Quantum Workplace classifies employees as belonging to generations using the cutoffs  recommended by the Pew Research Center in 2019: 

Generation Birth Years
Traditionalists 1928-1945
Baby Boomers 1946 – 1964
Gen X 1965 – 1980
Millennials 1981-1996
Gen Z 1997-


For surveys that were built prior to November 11, 2019, Quantum Workplace categorized generations in the following manner: 


Birth Years

Traditionalists 1927-1945
Baby Boomers 1946-1964
Gen X 1965-1983
Millennials 1984-2002
