The Me Generation, also known as Gen Y, the Net Generation, the Millennials, Nexters, Peter Pan Generation, and the Trophy Generation, typically doesn't respond to the one- size-fits-all management style. Born after 1980, they have a distinctive set of expectations, values, attitudes, priorities and behaviors as a result of the era in which they grew up. If the differences are ignored, this young population can grow into a source of misunderstanding and conflict. HR's goal is to appropriately address the challenges and opportunities that will give your organization the competitive edge.
Often thought of as the biggest work-shift in 100 years, the members of the Me Generation are here to stay. Although these young people are confident and also extremely tolerant of those who are different from them, they can come across as brash and cynical. Many believe they're entitled to quick financial and professional success.
