Generation Y is known for its highly individualistic, technologically-savvy resume builders with hosts of creative skills and abilities. Members of Generation Y grew up in a world where there was near instant access to information. From a young age, they had access to resources that their parents could never dream of. Will this generation completely change the American workforce the way their baby boomer parents and grandparents did? Almost certainly.
Gen Y consists of people born between 1980 and 2000. Many Generation Yers are just coming of working age with ample technological, analytical and creative skills, as well as highly polished communicative abilities. However, they lack the experience of their older counterparts, who often have a hard time communicating with Generation Y. Staffing agencies understand Generation Y and appreciate their unique abilities and strengths. A Cleveland temp agency can be an excellent resource to a member of Generation Y.
While in the past, job loyalty was a requirement in most companies. You had to “pay your dues.” In today’s unstable climate, generation Yers have foregone this idea, choosing instead to favor working hard on their own terms rather than trying to develop tenure at any one company. Generation Yers favor completely open communication and most exhibit a heavy reliance on technology to communicate and get information.
Generation Yers know they have a lot to offer, and are not willing to stick around for a long time in any position if they don’t receive the work environment, salary, recognition, and especially opportunities for growth they expect. All of this leads to a more transient workforce experience for members of Generation Y. Choose a Cleveland Ohio area temp agency like ours where there is an incredible resource to help Y’s navigate this unsteady work environment.
