Generation Y

  • Having lived a largely pampered life as children, Generation Y lacks grit.
  • Generation Y is forcing companies to think more creatively about employee management.
  • They care less about salaries and more about work-life balance. A childhood of being encouraged to develop multiple skills has led to an unrealistic view of life.

Having lived with ear plugs in their ears, blackberry’s in their hands laptops on their knees the Generation Y is completely equipped and in sync with the world. This Generation is about nurtured and pampered individuals who are not only high maintenance but also give out high performance. Gen Y are ambitious, career oriented and face challenges with a ‘we can do anything attitude’. You can’t blame the older generation for their perspective. Yes Gen Y had it easy but that’s not it. There are 70 million of them. This in itself implies the survival of the fittest. A workforce comprising of Generation Y’ers is going to change the outlook of enterprises. With all its strengths and weaknesses Gen Y will bring change for the better.
