The growing presence of Generation Y is creating the need for new talent management practices. According to PeopleStreme CEO, Lyle Potgieter “The global shift to knowledge economies means that industrial age management must give way to new talent management solutions. Engagement levels of Generation Y are the lowest of the three generations and they expect to be managed differently”.
Furthermore, due to the skills shortage in Australia, Generation Y is faced with an abundance of career opportunities. High mobility levels coupled with low engagement levels suggest it is now necessary for employers to actively manage progression and training towards career aspirations. Both career planning and talent identification processes now form a part of many talent management software and consulting solutions.
Recent research suggests that by 2015 Generation Y will account for 40% of the workforce as will Generation X, while Baby Boomers will decline by 22% to a total of 20%. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, Generation Y is an emerging generation of workers whose numbers will continue to grow and be predominant in the workforce for at least 20 years.
This poses new challenges for managers as diminished employee engagement in Generation Y workers will require their career and lifestyle needs to be better satisfied. A recent study found that 63% of Gen Y will voluntarily exit a company in two years or less. There is a strong corelation with trends in the United States. In contrast, the older generations said they expect to stay for six years, on average. As a result retention strategies need to be actively managed and developed in order to retain key Gen Y talent .
Generation Y has been brought up with access to cutting edge technology and they place a high importance on education. As a result they expect ongoing education after entering the workforce. “Generation Y have greater aspirations, are more results driven and expect regular feedback on their progress”, Potgieter commented. A recent research study has shown that 78.9% of the Generation Y workforce hold ongoing training and development of high importance to them. Furthermore, the same research concluded Gen Y workers are 89.6% more likely to stay with an employer if they receive regular training and development.
