GenY sucks in the workplace. Wow...who saw that coming?

http://tinyurl.com/2agnelf

Quote:
From tattoos to temperment, younger workers are missing the mark at exhibiting professional behavior in the office, a study finds. Entry-level salaries may be attractive to the bottom line, but a sense of entitlement and a deficient work ethic are leaving a bad taste in the mouths of hiring managers and upper management.

Technology workers concerned about younger people taking their jobs should listen up: GenY may be a generation raised on the Internet, but their communication skills, work ethic and overall professionalism in the workplace need some serious attention.

Recent college graduates are not living up to expectations of what it means to be professional on the job, according to research from York College’s Center for Professional Excellence, which polled 520 hiring managers, human resources leaders and business executives.

More than 88 percent of those surveyed said professionalism is related to the person not the position they are in. Nearly 40 percent found GenY to have poor grammar skills; Almost 30 percent found GenY to have a poor attitude, with 27 percent reporting these workers are “disrespectful and inconsiderate.” In terms of GenY’s IT habits, almost 40 percent found an increase in incidents involving IT etiquette, including the accessing of unauthorized company information.

“HR pros and business leaders identified five primary characteristics of the professional they are looking to hire,” David Polk, president of the Polk-Lepson Research Group, which conducted the survey, said in a statement. “The research also found that a lot of college graduates nationally are not measuring up well in these areas.”

If you are wondering what exactly defines a “professional,” here are the characteristics executives and managers rated as lacking in GenY workers, according to the York College research:

- motivation to see a task to its completion;
- overall interaction skills, including courtesy and respect when interacting;
- listening and communication skills;
- appearance; and
- self-confidence and awareness.

More than a third of those polled found recent graduates’ professionalism to have decreased over the last five years, but more than half found no change in professionalism over the same period. Of those who cited a decrease in professionalism, 61 percent found GenY to have a strong sense of entitlement and a lack of work ethic.

“Business leaders complained that many recent college graduates have a hard time accepting personal responsibility for their decisions or acting independently,” according to the report. “Managers also said graduates seem to not have a clear sense of direction or purpose in the office.”
Let's see... You coddle an entire generation of children and adjust EVERYTHING to their "different learning style", and it's a shock that once they leave that artificial environment, they don't play well with others?

Bad situations happen to good people, and no one is going to argue that isn't the case.

That said, the majority of the people that I know who are losing their asses, were living too close to the line or beyond it. Living in a house you can make the interest payment on, isn't good business.

I don't think employers should screw their employees, but I also don't think the kid fresh out of HS can really bitch about the guy with 20 years experience and an aerospace engineering degree is making more money or living in a nicer home.

None of this really is on target through, because work ethic will get a person a long ways, no matter what many loafers and non-producers would like the world to think.

So, Donger, you still want to claim vail isn't a racist prick?
Is wet back a derogatory term for all Hispanics crossing the border or just Mexicans?

I actually don't know, so I thought I'd ask an expert. I'll look it up myself.

Aha!

"person of Hispanic heritage" is a term for Mexicans who immigrate illegally to the United States.[1] It is generally used as an ethnic slur, and is sometimes applied to Mexican-Americans or others of Latin American descent.[citation needed] The term originally designated Mexicans who entered Texas by crossing the Rio Grande,[2] presumably by swimming or wading across and getting their back wet in the process. An equivalent term, mojado (meaning wet), exists in Spanish

So, it's a derogatory term for illegal Mexicans. No, I don't consider that racist at all. No more than when someone calls me a "Limey" or makes a joke about my teeth.

You get what you pay for.
Loyalty does work both ways and some companies still show their loyalty for those that work for them. The company I work for was bought by a giant corporation. The big guys attempt to sell the fact that they care, but it is obvious they are just out for the bottom line. The great thing for us is that our senior staff was retained and they keep the "family" feeling to our branch.

The wages do not seem to be depressed in my area, we are above the average salary by about 20%.

One thing I have found that is with some companies if you are loyal to them they respond in kind. I worked for one company a few years ago that was ran by a very dishonest person. He always suspected the worst of all but a very few of those that worked there. Needless to say, once the trusted few retired the whole company went down the tubes.

Big companies make talented people into frightened children. Scared to do anything bold or well thought out. People spend so much time in these carved out little niches that they don't know what to do with themselves when they get outside of that comfort zone.

This city is littered with ex Sprint employees trying to relearn how to do business with others because all they knew was that culture.

Boomers are scared of change and ineffective. Holding on to the reins as long as they can.

Some employers are Shitty employers to quality employees.

A lot of employees are shitty employees for quality employers.


It is my comprehension of this threadstarter, that the aforementioned shitty employees don't have the skills or work ethic to be good employees no matter where they work.

If you can't handle the ladies department of JC Penny, you're not going to be able to do much for Bloomingdales.
