Understanding and Unleashing GENERATION Y
For ten years now, sociologists have introduced us to Generation Y. They’ve been identified as the Digital Generation, Mosaics, Techies, Millennials and Screenagers. They are the talk of Human Resource professionals and newspaper journalists, they are the prize of their parents, and they are the market share every retailer covets. They are the kids born between 1984 and 2002 and may be the largest generation in our history. The older you are, the more you’ll feel like an immigrant among natives—with this new generation. They’ve shifted from our Gutenberg era into their own Google era. Their bias is for action and interaction. We have the privilege of shaping their future.
