Identity is important, after all we are all unique individuals and we can shape ourselves in many different ways over our lifetimes but amongst the many labels we can’t shed is the generation we are defined by simply because of the year of our birth.


You might be defined as belonging to:

  • The Lost Generation of 1890-1915
  • The Interbellum Generation of 1901-1913
  • The Greatest Generation of 1910 – 1924
  • The Silent Generation of 1925 – 1945
  • The Baby Boomer Generation of 1946 – 1964
  • Generation X of 1965 – 1979
  • Xennials for those that cross between 1975 & 1985
  • Millennials or Gen Y of 1980 – 1994
  • Gen Z of 1995 – 2012
  • And finally Gen Alpha of 2013-2025


That’s a lot of generations and an awful lot of negative stereotyping.  Perito argues that it’s time to consign these date/event defined categories to the historians and social sciences academics. Its time to bring us all together in the adoption of an all-encompassing term that makes sense in the new post-Covid 19 era.

That definition?

How does ‘Generation Pan’ sound to you?

What our clients say

"Perito performed an Access Audit for our South Essex Construction Training Academy branch in Basildon. We were really pleased with the report, it focused on what we could achieve by breaking down the actions so we really understood what the tasks were. We also used the report in our new funding model for The Advice Store. It was very useful to have all the information laid out so clearly." - SECTA - Southend on Sea Council
"As a business owner I am interested in making sure my facilities are as accessible to my clients as possible. I wasn't sure where to start but Perito have been great in making the complex law straightforward and they provided me with a nice report. I was pleased that a lot of the suggestions were really practical and easy to sort out by my regular maintenance team and cost almost nothing to implement. The Perito inspection team were very discreet and courteous. Thanks Perito!" - Ikandu Ltd
"We’d like to thank James and his team for their professional approach, seamless dealings with us and satisfactory outcome for this survey.
The Perito team has added value in ways we hadn’t expected. In that it has enabled us to understand the costs associated with the works which we have and will use to good effect in our future planning and strategy. We are a charity and as such have to manage our funds wisely. Perito’s practical approach and their ability to recommend changes that had little or no cost as well as the larger more costly changes, has meant we are able to improve our Branch within our limited budget. Highly recommend." - Samaritans Plymouth Branch
