It is the first time in history that there are four generations working side by side in the workplace. Generation Y are destined to replace an aging workforce. The American Society of Training and Development is predicting that 76 million Americans will retire over the next two decades. Only 46 million will be arriving to replace them. Most of those new workers will be Generation Y’ers. The Baby Boomers have been running the show for the past 20 years and they like things just the way they are. The Generation Y’ers are under the age of 30 and the most productive of all the generations, but require a lot of attention and flexibility. Some say that this mix of experience and efficiency, is causing some friction in the workplace. This presentation will introduce the Generation Y perspective (common myths and expectations), give some real life examples of what HR professionals are faced with in today’s workplace, and tips/resources to help both generations work together and be successful!
