It seems as if Gen Ys have a “one-second” attention span. What can an employer do to challenge and keep the attention of our 21-29 year old workforce?
Because of the fast-paced, high-tech world in which they grew up, many Gen Ys do require a great deal of mental stimulation and find it challenging to focus. In the workplace, we need to provide stimulating work and the best technology we can afford to maintain this generation Ys interest. If we can demonstrate how our organization contributes to society and how much we need them individually to achieve community outreach, our organizations will have a better chance of getting and keeping Gen Ys interest.
