Gen Y at Work!
The Gen Y generation is the people born between 1980 and 2000. As they become a larger segment of the workforce, employers may have to adjust in order to attract and retain them. The loud voices from them are describes as:
"We are more interested in people and purpose than products and service”
"It's not necessarily about money. It's more about the environment and the people we are working with”
"We want a company to be more holistic in our approach"
“We want more mentorship. We want more professional development and personal development”
"We’re past the days when people are willing to go to work for 12 hours a day and slave away in a dark room."
Employers must create the supportiveenvironment that make them having a sense of purpose at work, that might help them feel more engaged—like they’re part of something bigger.They need to be involved and know the why and reason behind their companies and products or services.Leaders need to adapt with these changes in order to make their company sustain in the future, connect with the heart and mind of them.
