Managing & Engaging the New Workforce 'Generation Y'

Generation Y, otherwise known as the millennial generation, refers to individuals born between 1982 and 2005.Hiring new, young talent just out of college is challenging some established practices of management and changing today's corporate culture. With the shift of the younger employment force from Generation X to Generation Y  companies are finding that there are different attitudes and work habits that need to be incorporated into the existing culture. With companies now having different generational mentalities and priorities, the corporate melting pot has new challenges ahead.

New college graduates are entering the workforce, having never known a world without computers, cell phones, email, or instant messaging. They have been brought up in a fast-paced, instant world that is always moving and changing. Their parents valued their opinions from the time they were toddlers and gave them choices, rather than making decisions for them .These younger employees are looking for innovating ways to complete tasks that may go against the style of the older workforce.

This is the newest generation to enter the workforce. Leaders across disciplines are taking note of the challenges and opportunities associated with training this unique group.

Generation Y & what they want?

Adapting to the needs of 'Generation Y' is a growing priority for many employers today, as they represent the next generation of talent for any organization, and recruiters today are saying that the competition for talent in today's marketplace is stronger than at any time in the last seven years.

"The graduate entering an organization today wants a 'relational' contract with their employer as opposed to the more traditional 'transactional' structure, where loyalty was given in return for reward. Today's graduate wants to believe in his/her place of work and the overall objectives and business practices of the organization for which they work. Generation Y employees want to work with an organization, not for them."

Generation Y prefers to work in groups with hands-on experiences. They enjoy trial and error. Generation Y does not highly value reading and listening to lectures. They want learning to be creative, interactive, and fun; and they enjoy thinking outside the box. They are actually hungry for general direction and ideas to pursue. Generally, they explore, share, and investigate far more thoroughly than required.

Generation Y & their growing influence

By 2025, the millennial generation will comprise over 75% of the global workforce. They want to work in environments which foster innovative thinking, they want to develop their skills, they want to nurture leadership skills and they want to work for organizations which make a positive contribution to society. The tools for employers to use to engage Generation Y include creating meaning and purpose in their work, reinforcing the values and vision of their organization to them, emphasizing opportunity and challenge and showing an interest in their personal career path

Millennials want an environment where the lines of communication and rules are explicit and firm. They dislike ambiguity. As a result, they seem to prefer a more lengthy orientation period to digest the information and understand what is expected. From the beginning, it is important to clearly apprise them, particularly regarding timeliness, dress, and use of social networking .

Mentoring (or Parenting) Generation Y

Generation Y wants to have a close relationship with authority figures, just as they did with their parents. They want to feel that supervisors care about them personally. They want to feel special. Generation Y prefers to work with superiors who are approachable, supportive, good communicators, and good motivator.

One approach is to reconceptualize the role of academic advisor to include more of a parental function with regular meetings and personal attention. Mentor meetings would focus on summarizing progress, reinforcing messages of professionalism, and teaching problem solving. Mentoring should also focus on developing decision making skills, contemplation, and self-reflection.

Role of business schools in Generation Y Learning

As a first step, members of Generation Y may need to be encouraged to develop some 'basic' skills in their education. For example, verbal reasoning and written English along with mental arithmetic and concepts of budgeting were all listed as key items by respondents. Involving them in Team-based activities help in understanding team dynamics and how individuals support team goals. Other soft skills such as listening, understanding personal impact, persuasion, influencing and people management need to be identified as areas for development.

Business schools need to focus on nitty -gritty of general management and also about a functional specialization so that the students can become jack of all trades and master of management. The Indian Business schools should reinvent themselves with changing times and redesign their academic curriculum for facing the current challenges in the businessenvironment. The course curriculum should be designed to suit new perspectives for building managerial and leadership skills. The faculties should be from excellent academic background with an industry exposure. They should be a special breed of people driven by passion rather money. They need to inspire and motivate the students through right communication skills. They should preferably have industry experience in a reputed organization. It is desirable to have research experience in management along with consultancy and teaching experience.


Generation Y youths have a different attitude towards work. They do not want to work as hard as their parents but spend their life in a meaningful way. They do not live to work, they work to live. They can be described as ambitious and self-confident. They have high expectations and seek new challenges and are not afraid to raise questions if something is unclear. Retention of the best new talent and failure to keep a high proportion of GEN Y'engaged' and happy in the workplace is a constant challenge for organizations

In order to build a stronger nation for generations to come and to bring about great change within our communities, nation and world, it's crucial that the leaders of our generation understand that great things will not always occur overnight, but will take hard work, diligence, patience and time to manifest most of the time.

Contemporary Management Issues: Change Management for the Budding Managers

Organization and people skills both are important for an individual to stay competitive in the dynamic business environment.  It is important  to acknowledge the winds of globalization for bringing new dimensions in domestic business, resulting in  change management.  It is essential for a corporates to combine organizational change management with the possibilities of social business and lessons learned in global environment in regard to the growth of an individual as well the organization.

As in our personal life also it is must for an individual to go through change from one stage of life to another. As a person progresses from one stage of life to another,  change comes with change in goals, procedures or routines and in response many of us balk, drag our feet, or complain.  Yet no enterprise or person can prosper over the long term without healthy change.

The world is in a constant flux one expects that people would accept change as inevitable.  Instead, we often resist it consciously or unconsciously.  This is partly true because it requires effort to incorporate changes but once change is incorporated people can again get used to the adapted change, and this chain forms a continuous loop so that employees change, get stable in the changed scenario and again change as per the changing environment.  and people who do not change are left behind. .

Change usually comes from the top management or by experienced personalities.  However increasingly, managers are listening to ideas for innovation from people throughout their organization. After all, people who actually perform the critical task have hands on approach and can manage this better. This result in improved productivity, performance, efficiency and competitiveness as per standards fixed.  Leaders must plan for change, communicate with followers about it in timely and in a very clear cut procedure, followed by monitoring while performing or executing the procedure.  This monitoring is incomplete till feedback through people evaluation methods is given thus upgrading the entire organizational performance.

As a young generation  when you a joining your first organization or as individual in need of a change an open-minded approach is a must along with a positive attitude. More specifically individuals can:  the first employees of an organization, or to the individuals who needs of change, approach with open mind and learn to develop its positive elements;

1. Write down the necessary changes you would like and plan for them .

2. If as an individual you feel you are resisting change, then ask yourself 'Why?' and keep on doing this till you feel you have identified the right reason that is stopping you. .

3. Have a learning attitude and link this to your career growth.

4. Respond in a positive manner to uncertainty rather than avoiding  or  not accepting it

5. Cultivate curiosity and  generate interest in your job, so that you are the most-informed person.

6. Master and use new technologies-. And stay updated at the technological front.

7. Welcome change initiatives from all sources.

8. Always respond positively for the changes both within and outside your organization.

9. Prioritize change in key areas, and then focus attention more widely.

10. Be clear about the purpose of any change and concentrate on a few that really count.

11. Monitor morale closely, and take necessary action if it begins to deteriorate.

Believe in yourself and don't take any suggestions for change personally. Look at suggestions objectively and constructively and incorporate them in yourself.

Any business, organization or person who wants to grow must not only accept change, but also anticipate it and seek it.  It is not, a question of change for the sake of change.  It is a question of making progress.  Failing to change is the same as standing still.  It means staying in the same rut without learning, growing and making positive progress.
