JOB SECURITY IS OUT, FLEXIBLE JOBS ARE IN!

In his work life, the average worker will change career between 3 and 7 times: that is not counting the number of times he or she will change jobs within the same career trend. Is this due to a generational trait, where workers put a high value on new opportunities, variety (Flexible jobs) or is it the result of the evolution of companies’ needs following globalization? Are those two as conflicting as they may seem at first glance?

Right now, doing a simple Google search about…

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.

Recruitment - Is that all we do?
