Also known as Millennials and born between 1980 and 1995, Generation Y now constitutes up to 35% of the workforce. Like any group of people, you will find some difficult or impossible to manage, but with most, you’ll do just fine as long as you’re willing to work with their peculiarities.
Generation Y has different work requirements and expectations than their more conservative predecessors – the Gen Xers who manage them
This generation is often negatively and inaccurately classified as consisting of disenfranchised, antisocial technophiles with short attention spans and poor communication skills. Overall there is a consensus that Millennials have grown up in a very different environment to previous generations, they come to the workplace with different skills and lack some skills as well. Like previous generations they are motivated by different things however, they think differently about learning and development, they also have a different approach to work relationships. These differences when combined with all the recent advances in technology and communication suggests that there is a demand for new ways of working and learning.
An understanding of these differences will help managers to be effective and their Gen Y’s to flourish
Who Should Attend:
And the difference they introduce in the work place
For learning and development. Helping them identify opportunities to develop new skills. Working with their impatience, eagerness for new experiences, creating visible short-term goals and results they thrive on.
Removing rigid protocols or displays of power
Role modeling rather than flexing authority
Professional prestige and the consistency of their actions
Making the organisation attractive with a strong culture and values that are in line with their own ideals and lifestyle
Work environment that means being part of something important rather than just making money
