Generation Y – for some of us it is the word of the year! While there is hundreds of articles released every day, showing up statistics and talking about attitudes of this generation, it is interesting to see, that opinions and statistics vary a lot and come to different conclusions.
The only thing all the articles have in common is the fact, that those young people have changed their philosophy of life to a big extend, resulting in a change in their work commitment and attitude.
Hence, the „real“ attributes and therefore the definition of Generation Y still is a real mystery. This becomes evident by looking at the famous “fringe-benefits” coming from Google, Facebook etc. They are only the tip of the iceberg, when it comes to HR-departments racking their heads, when trying to make their company attractive to young graduates.
Being a talent-matching network, MercuryPuzzle is in the unique position of being able to collect objective data regarding that topic, as we are trying to help this target group with their job search.
Of course we want to share these data with you. We will take a chance and post new Generation Y statistics and trends every Monday.
