Explain how employees' needs and expectations may change with age and family patterns.
Employees, both male and female, have needs and expectations that change as they get older or their family situations change. The younger generations are coming out of school, looking for work, wanting to get married or move out of their parents' home and establish their own, and have children. The middle age worker is normally in the throws of trying to keep their income and pay for all these things they attained at the younger age. The older worker is looking for stability, loyalty from the company, and looking towards retirement. All of these generations want a job that benefits them and that they can benefit.
