Introduction
In 2009, approximately 100,000 people from 34 countries in North America, Europe, and the
Asia Pacific region responded to a workplace survey developed by Kelly Services. The Kelly
Global Workforce Index (KGWI) revealed opinions about work and the workplace from a
generational viewpoint. Despite the variations of cultures, survey results were surprisingly
similar across the globe.

Meaningful Work
                 According to the survey, a majority of respondents believe that their contributions to a greater
                 cause are more important than their annual salaries or job titles. On average, 51 percent of
                 respondents stated that they would accept a lesser role or even a lower wage if they were certain
                 their new position would contribute more to society than their current position. Many employees
                 do not appear to be as driven by monetary assets as they used to be; rather, they prefer to fulfill
                 their psychological needs, as well as their inner-driven desires to positively impact others.

Today’s top talent is constantly searching for ways to improve on-the-job performance, while also
striving to compete for positions in a global market. In order to stand out among the competition,
employees must have adequate skill sets which will help them contribute to organizations well
into the future. Unfortunately, according to the Kelly Global Workforce Index, many survey
respondents feel that their current skill sets are not adequate. Some respondents fear that they
may not be able to maintain their existing positions for the coming years or compete for valuable
positions within their desired industries in the future.

Mobile Communications
During the past two decades, technological advancements have transformed the lives of worldwide
citizens, especially within the corporate world. In recent times, one significant technological innovation,
mobile communication, has truly changed employee behavior, as well as the outlook on work-life
balance, according to the Kelly Global Workforce Index. A vast majority of survey respondents (84
percent) believe that mobile communication has improved their personal productivity while working,
and the opportunity to remain in constant communication with work is rather positive as well.

Workplace Attitudes
                 As Baby Boomers and individuals from Generations X and Y work together within organizations,
                 conflicts may arise, primarily due to varying opinions about technology, work schedules, and
                 social life, among other issues. The Kelly Global Workforce Index has shown that issues like
                 communication style and monetary awards tend to create workplace attitude differences among
                 each generation. For example, older workers who are well established within their industries
                 typically prefer training opportunities or vacations more than Generation Y workers, who would
                 rather have monetary rewards. Consider the following interesting findings across North America,
                 Europe, and the Asia Pacific region:

Social Responsibility
As organizations continuously strive to improve their “bottom lines” each day, they must
remember that employees do not tend to view organizational value through monetary worth
only. Instead, organizations are deemed valuable when they have a combination of both social
responsibility practices and high net worth.

Globalization
                 A majority of survey respondents (83 percent) from all four corners of the world tend to also
                 believe that organizations should strive to employ individuals of various nationalities and
                 cultures to achieve organizational success, especially as globalization continually increases. Most
                 respondents (78 percent) want to become more globally oriented as they work on a regular
                 basis. Unfortunately, half of the respondents indicated that their organizations neither offers nor
                 encourages sufficient cultural and language training opportunities. As a result, many people will
                 not be adequately prepared to work with individuals from different cultures in the future.

According to survey results, each generation of respondents has similar opinions about various

  • 3. Introduction In 2009, approximately 100,000 people from 34 countries in North America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific region responded to a workplace survey developed by Kelly Services. The Kelly Global Workforce Index (KGWI) revealed opinions about work and the workplace from a generational viewpoint. Despite the variations of cultures, survey results were surprisingly similar across the globe.

  • 4. Meaningful Work According to the survey, a majority of respondents believe that their contributions to a greater cause are more important than their annual salaries or job titles. On average, 51 percent of respondents stated that they would accept a lesser role or even a lower wage if they were certain their new position would contribute more to society than their current position. Many employees do not appear to be as driven by monetary assets as they used to be; rather, they prefer to fulfill their psychological needs, as well as their inner-driven desires to positively impact others. Introduction Meaningful work is more important Michael Webster is executive vice president than monetary assets and general manager for the Americas region Meaningful at Kelly Services. He believes that many in the Work Older generations tend to be less satisfied with Generation X and Y age groups will continue the long-lasting impact that their positions have to progressively seek meaningful employment on society.

  • 5. Training Programs Today’s top talent is constantly searching for ways to improve on-the-job performance, while also striving to compete for positions in a global market. In order to stand out among the competition, employees must have adequate skill sets which will help them contribute to organizations well into the future. Unfortunately, according to the Kelly Global Workforce Index, many survey respondents feel that their current skill sets are not adequate. Some respondents fear that they may not be able to maintain their existing positions for the coming years or compete for valuable positions within their desired industries in the future. Employees desire more sufficient To help sustain their current employees, Introduction training programs managers will need to implement more effective training programs which will support workers Meaningful So, why do respondents appear to be anxious from each generation.

  • 7. Mobile Communications During the past two decades, technological advancements have transformed the lives of worldwide citizens, especially within the corporate world. In recent times, one significant technological innovation, mobile communication, has truly changed employee behavior, as well as the outlook on work-life balance, according to the Kelly Global Workforce Index. A vast majority of survey respondents (84 percent) believe that mobile communication has improved their personal productivity while working, and the opportunity to remain in constant communication with work is rather positive as well. Mobile communications technology Survey results are similar in both Europe and Introduction significantly impacts work-life balance the Asia Pacific region.

  • 8. Workplace Attitudes As Baby Boomers and individuals from Generations X and Y work together within organizations, conflicts may arise, primarily due to varying opinions about technology, work schedules, and social life, among other issues. The Kelly Global Workforce Index has shown that issues like communication style and monetary awards tend to create workplace attitude differences among each generation. For example, older workers who are well established within their industries typically prefer training opportunities or vacations more than Generation Y workers, who would rather have monetary rewards. Consider the following interesting findings across North America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific region: Introduction In North America, 41 percent of A majority of Baby Boomer, Generation X, Meaningful respondents believe that generational and Generation Y respondents tend to Work differences can indeed create a more favor face-to-face communication more productive workplace. than any other communication style.

  • 10. Globalization A majority of survey respondents (83 percent) from all four corners of the world tend to also believe that organizations should strive to employ individuals of various nationalities and cultures to achieve organizational success, especially as globalization continually increases. Most respondents (78 percent) want to become more globally oriented as they work on a regular basis. Unfortunately, half of the respondents indicated that their organizations neither offers nor encourages sufficient cultural and language training opportunities. As a result, many people will not be adequately prepared to work with individuals from different cultures in the future.
