    • Gen Y, a.k.a. the millennial generation, boys and girlsbetween 15-30, is increasingly entering the job market.Since they are globally a bigger cohort than theirpredecessors (Gen X), their influence on society, politicsand business the next decades will be higher andcomparable to the influential Babyboomer generation.But this new active generation feels that they are nottaken serious at this point.

Online surfing is the number oneactivity during leisure time (especially in China and India).Millennials look for social proximity as well though (like hanging outwith friends) and feel respected by the people surrounding them(partner, parents, friends).Russian, Chinese and Indian Yers feel they get enough attentionfrom brands (approx. 1/2). European Yers are less convinced.Regardless of the country, brands should create an own style andevoke happiness. For some countries (Romania, USA, China),authenticity is key, so is brand asset.
