YOUNGER EMPLOYEES IN YOUR WORKFORCE

Managing employees from the younger generation has become an increasing challenge for managers.
Who are Generation X and Y and why are they different?
Why do they require different management?

Managing diversity includes managing a workforce that is from a different generation.

Do you have youngsters who put their pens down at 5 pm and leave their work, even if there is a job to be completed?
Do you feel that young workers have no work ethic?
Do you think that these employees lack commitment and demand far beyond what they are putting in?
Do you find Generation X and Y materialistic, cynical, disrespectful and demanding?
