Gen Y'ers Will Save The Workforce | Come Recommended

Gen Y'ers Will Save The Workforce | Come Recommended | Millennials | Scoop.it
Generation Y is a creative and innovative generation who will save the future of the workforce.
Marilyn Moats Kennedy's insight:

I agree that Gen Y is passionate, driven, open minded, innovative and want to make a difference.  None of this keeps them from being mini-anarchists and anti-establishment.  That's the real challenge for their managers -- especially since, if you ask Gen Y, they don't see themselves that way.

GenY vs Boomers Workplace Conflict Heats Up

GenY vs Boomers Workplace Conflict Heats Up | Millennials | Scoop.it

David Koeppel of The Fiscal Times brings us a really interesting article on the generational differences between Boomers (Born 1945 to 1964) and GenYers (born 1981 to 2000)

 

This is choc-full of interesting statistics and insights.

 

Excerpt:

 

Here are a couple of the statistics from each age group which clearly set the stage for the conflict:

 

Employment among GenY went down from 67.3% in 2000 to 55.3% in 2010.

 

In 1995, 17% of men aged over 65, and 9% of women the same age, were still in the workforce.

 

**  In 2009, those numbers were 22% and 13% respectively.

 

The number of people aged 25-34 living with their parents has increased by about a quarter since before the recession.

 

A third of older workers did not like the informality of the younger workers.

 

My Commentary

 

I'm sorry, but whereas I believe this last number, it is a joke. Talk about short memories!

 

When I joined the workforce, it was my generation that was deemed too informal by those of anyone who was pre-Boomer. 

 

**How could the original rebel generation become so staid and forgetful?

 

**As for the increasing numbers of older people remaining in the workforce adversely affecting the prospects of younger people,

 

 

**this is an unfortunate side-effect of economic realities. 

 

**"In Many instances, the parents of boomers amassed more money and were able to retire sooner and more comfortably. 

 

**The boomers want more than their parents had but many have a lot less."

 

As they stay in the workforce, employers balk at training new people to those jobs when there are already people to do them.

 

I see many GenYers succeeding as entrepreneurs in new fields where they make the rules, even as those who join the traditional workforce and try to play by existing rules often struggle mightily.

 

** And I see far bigger shifts on the horizon.

Generation X Tops List as Worst Savers While Millennials Excel at Managing Money, According to New GoBankingRates.com Investigation

Generation X Tops List as Worst Savers While Millennials Excel at Managing Money, According to New GoBankingRates.com Investigation | Millennials | Scoop.it
Considering America's varied and often turbulent economic history, each generation has grown up with a unique financial perspective.
Marilyn Moats Kennedy's insight:

"Generation Z (Millennials), on the other hand, have seen how the ups and downs of several recessions have affected their parents and grandparents. As a result, a survey conducted by TD Ameritrade notes that Gen Z has a high understanding of today’s financial and economic realities."

 

I really disagree with their age groupings, and futhermore, the Millennials I see in my career counseling are not motivated by money and don't understand finance.
