Gen Y Management
Generation Y starts around 1980, though it’s not an exact science as generations flow at the cusp. They are right behind Boomers in their size so are having a profound effect on the workplace. They are technology driven, have strong views, driving change in business and will continue to do so for many years.
“How To Manage Your Generation Y Employees” on ExecutiveSpeakersBureau.com, provides an interesting perspective around Gen Y employees:
Each summer, hundreds of thousands of graduates flood the workplace with nothing but a degree and a dream of having a great career. An increasingly large percentage (50% of the world’s population is under 30 years old) of the workforce is considered part of Generation Y, a tech-savvy group who craves feedback and reinforcement, and uses humor regularly.
In managing employees, not only do you have individual differences, there are generation views that impact your role in handling your team. Yet, if you focus on respect for each person and do some simple research on the different generations, you can understand how to best lead them. You have to be available for all employees, though this younger generation requires more attention as they also demand it…be involved with this new talent in the workplace.
