Baby boomers belong to the generation born after World war II (!943 to 1960s)

Generation X is  generation born after the Western post war baby boom (1960 to early 1980s)

Millennials  are called "Generation Y", following Generation X (from the early 1980s to the early 2000s)

Reference:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Generation

Millennials are tech-savvy, but aren't great team players. Gen X-ers are entrepreneurial-thinking, but rank low on executive presence. And last, but not least, Boomers are team players and loyal, but don't adapt so well.

Depending upon the nature of the firm one may make use of the best combination of these three generations
