L'enquête "L'intégration de la génération Y en entreprise aujourd'hui : Enjeux, opportunités et obstacles pour les entreprises et les institutions de formation" a été réalisée par l'IAE Lyon à l'occasion du 9ème Forum Carrières du Management. Dite en rupture avec les attitudes de ses ainés vis-à-vis du travail et des entreprises, cette génération donnerait du fil à retordre aux entreprises, mais constituerait un atout indéniable pour impulser le changement. Quelles visions les entreprises ont-elles de ces jeunes ?

May 2009 On April 13, a diverse group of Baby Boomers, Gen X-ers, and Millenials working for social change came together to explore multi-generational leadership in the nonprofit sector. The learning session, one of a series through RCLA's Social Change Leadership Network, was a chance for participants to work within their generation and across generations to better understand themselves and how to work with each other. In an interactive exercise, participants identified key values for people born between 1946 and 1964 (Baby Boomers); 1965 and 1980 (Gen X-ers); and 1981 and 2003 (Millenials/Gen Y-ers) by answering the following questions: 1) What do we do best?
The business world has been watching this emerging generation with trepidation, and a lot of us haven’t been sure who would be the winners, and who would be the losers. Can they survive as entrepreneurs, and do they have the passion it takes to run a startup and attract investors? My own perspective is that the recession has been good for Gen-Y (Millennials), because it has forced them to face reality, often for the first time in their life. In the last couple of years, even college grads with advanced degrees don’t have job opportunities waiting for them.
Fifty percent of world population is under 30 years old. Generation Y is the first generation to grow up with technology; they experience technology even before romance enters their lives. They are digital natives – their whole social lives are on social networks. And that impacts their behaviors, attitudes and expectations… especially their expectations toward future employers. It seems that money isn’t one of the primary motivators for this generation.
Young people are using Facebook for personal over professional reasons, yet they are friending their coworkers. A new study by Millennial Branding , of over 50 million Facebook data points from Identified.com , uncovers that people aged 18 to 29 are inadvertently using their profiles as an extension of their professional personality, even though they are socializing with family and friends. And 64 percent of so-called generation y fails to list their employer on their profiles, yet they add an average of 16 coworkers each to their friend group. “Gen y needs to be aware that what they publish online can come back to haunt them in the workplace.

Gen Y is taking over.
"Generation Y and work in the tourism and hospitality industry: problem" by Grant Cairncross and Jeremy BuultjensPublication details Cairncross, G & Buultjens, J 2007, 'Generation Y and work in the tourism and hospitality industry: problem? What problem?', Centre for Enterprise Development and Research Occasional Paper , no. 9, Southern Cross University, Coffs Harbour, NSW.
Principal researcher for InterGen at the Work Foundation, Dr Wilson Wong, looks at whether the evidence that each working-age generation is subject to factors that have shaped its identity is inconclusive and whether the construct of 'generations' adequately addresses such complexities as chronological age, life- or work-stage and context and methodological constraints. He also explores how the generational theory is assumed to be true and those perceived differences makes for cross-generational conflict within organisations. He goes on to conclude that further research should focus on the contours of fairness; the principles underpinning a healthy negotiation of what is fair between generations. The Times, a respectable broadsheet, claims that '...Baby Boomers and members of Generation X (are) like dogs – treat them right and they will be loyal. But members of...Generation Y, are more like cats: they just go where the money is.' ( Booth 2007 ).
“I need to come up with a way of implementing ‘competition and rewards’ features on my app, I am sure people will be more excited about it then. Gamification is the new black” explained James Dean, a 22 year old product manager for a tech start-up in NYC. ( Sidenote: ‘Gamification’ used to be such a sacred word in tech circles but now it’s so bloody trite. I swear neologisms are the devil ).The fight is in his face, confidence oozes through him and he claims his biggest attribute is his remarkable enthusiasm. James graduated from NYU last year and plans to start his own start-up in the next few weeks, a location-cognizant mobile application that notifies you of specific activities based on your social interests. He is not very different from several thousands of people with the same mind set these days.
Posted by Tom Foremski - April 19, 2011 The film "The Social Network" has helped to make startups popular among young people the world over. It's just one factor inspiring new generations of entrepreneurs hoping to succeed through innovation and hard work. But are they learning ethical ways of doing business?
