Do employers need to to adapt to meet the needs of Gen Y? (Or should Gen Y adapt to meets the needs of the employer?)

When I was growing up as something of a surly youth way back when, I had my own idea of what I wanted and what the world owed me. But, I soon found out that in order to get on in life, and in work, you need a degree of flexibility rather than a set of immovable expectations around which employers need to lightly tread. The difference is of course, back then we…

Not Your Typical Millennial

By this time, we’ve all heard about the Millennial generation or Gen Y.  We know about Helicopter Parents (or worse, Blackhawk parents), entitlement issues, and the fact that they’re all what we’d consider “digital natives.”  Yep – Gen Y has never known the world without the internet.  We’re different than any other generation.  Yes, you heard me right.  We.  I’m a Millennial too. …

How can employers make themselves relevant to Gen Y?

Employers need to think big about how they are going to showcase their organisational culture and people to draw in, attract, and retain the next wave of high potential talent. While baby boomers still firmly rule the roost in the workplace, a new generation of graduates are emerging with a different set of influences and cultural reference points.



These graduates have grown up with technology around them, and thus have a different set of expectations from the world they interact… Continue

Gen Y – Tear down your walls

Every so often, we have a generational shift – Baby Boomers, Generation X, Gen Y. Every time this happens, all the changes in behaviour, in interests, in work ethics, in motivational drivers are being dissected and highlighted, new modi operandi imagined, claims made – out with the old, in with the new.

* Employers are complaining about the time 'wasted' by employees who use these sites regularly at work



If you are currently in HR, and find… Continue

My Social; Network

I am constantly being asked to join a “Mafia Family”. I regularly get invited to “Link into” someone’s network. And I know that “My Face and My Space” has been accepted as friend and network resource from old classmates at PS 104 to contacts of current Governors and past Presidents of the US.



Am I really popular? I don’t think so. Might I insightfully provide wisdom that will lead to a lottery’s monetary value of wealth? As the “Magic 8 Ball” would say, “It is very unlikely.” What is… Continue

A Short Film from My Generation (y)



I found this video on TalentCloud after Peter Gold followed me on twitter. The site looks very interesting. It should keep me occupied for the rest of the evening.



I am not sure if I endorse this or not just yet but I do see some of the truth in the way we (gen y'ers) see the world.

What does workforce planning really mean? Talent management? Recruitment and retention?



Could we amend our thinking around what retention stands for?

Bernard Salt spoke at the recent "State of the Industry" dinner for the Recruitment & Consulting Services Association in Melbourne, at which I was a special guest of CEO Julie Mills. Bernard recounted a story whereby a lawyer had in years previous, lamented at how they would invest… Continue
