The number of employers you'll have in your career doubles with each Generation

The number of employers you'll have in your career doubles with each Generation | Strategic Workforce Planning | Scoop.it
We all know that it's rare to have one employer for life nowadays.  But how
many employers are we likely to have?  Today I stumbled across some
interesting research from Adam Kingl and Richard Hytner of the London
Business School, and it came to the interesting finding that to date, the
number of employers you'll have in a career has roughly doubled per
generation.  If this exponential trend continues, this would mean that
Generation Z employees will have around 32 different employers in their
working lives.  Assuming a working life of 18 to 65, that means that tenure
would average less than 18 months for this group.

Estimated Number of Employers in your Working Life Source:
http://www.slideshare.net/londonbusinessschool/gls-adamkingl

Another interesting outcome of the survey was the responses to the question
"How long do you expect to stay with an employer?"  Survey respondents had
an average age of 29, and responded this way:

Proportion of Respondents who plan to stay with an Employer for:

...In other words, 95% of respondents planned to be with an employer for 10
years or less; and 90% planned to be with an employer for 5 years or less.

This environment will be a challenging one for employers who haven't
updated their workforce strategy since a career for life was the norm - or
even those who expect current median length of tenure to stay static.  In
the future it will be even more imperative to access the right talent, get
their workforce up to speed quickly, and to preserve institutional
knowledge.  There are opportunities, however, for faster innovation, and
more diversity of thought and experience in this new world of work.

Employers and HR professionals alike decry the disloyalty of each new
generation, and Generation Y has been the latest target.  Of course, in
every other aspect of our lives we recognise that loyalty is a two-way
process.  Each generation has seen an erosion of Employer Loyalty.  Many
Gen Y kids have seen their parents suffer from retrenchment, restructures,
or flat out being fired.  In March this year alone, almost 1.8 million
people in the US were laid off or discharged (source: Bureau of Labor
Statistics) - 1.27% of the working population.  And March was a good
month.  If you're looking for employee loyalty, a good place to start is by
being loyal to your employees.  That doesn't mean accepting poor
performance, but rather ensuring that your workforce strategy, throughout
the whole employee lifecycle, creates a workforce that is both
high-performing, and agile enough to respond to changing business
conditions.

Leadership Summit:

Strategy under uncertainty | McKinsey & Company

Strategy under uncertainty | McKinsey & Company | Strategic Workforce Planning | Scoop.it
The traditional approach to strategy requires precise predictions and thus often leads executives to underestimate uncertainty. This can be downright dangerous. A four-level framework can help. A McKinsey Quarterly article.
Alex Hagan's insight:

This article by McKinsey makes the point that there are four levels of uncertainty in strategic planning today, ranging from a "clear enough" future right through to true uncertainty.  Strategic Planning approaches will differ in each of these levels of uncertainty and as you progress through the levels, the effective approaches become more qualitative and less quantitative.

Dan Dimicco claims that "a country that doesn’t create or make or build things is doomed to mediocrity."  But does "things" need to mean manufacturing?  What about a country that creates or makes or builds services?  And should the US government spend trillions of dollars to subsidise an industry that can't survive on its' own?  Possibly... there's and interesting argument for exactly that in this article.
