National HRD Network & NHRDN Mumbai Chapter in association with Jagan Institute of Management Studies (JIMS) is pleased to announce its one day Seminar on Managing GEN-Y @ Workplace-"Discover the Key to unlock the GEN-Y Potential" on Friday 17 June 2011, at ITC Grand Central, Mumbai
“What makes Gen-Y different from other generations? What most influences Gen- Y? What allures them? How can we better communicate with them? What shapes this generation? How can organizations engage and inspire them to maximize their impact and productivity?
With the infiltration of Gen Y, unique culture has come up in the corporate environments with the intergenerational functioning. Management has to surface new strategies to align different generations to the larger goals of the organization. It is stimulating new methods of thinking, behaving, communicating, and doing business in the organization.”
Four interactive panel discussions are planned through the day. In each session, a panel of three speakers will discuss the challenges and emerging trends. All the 4 sessions will be moderated by an Anchor who will act as a facilitator and a healthy challenger to engage all of the participants in debate and discussion.
Interactive Panel Discussion Sessions On :
Wooing GEN - Y
- Companies that are successfully attracting Generation Y employees also make promises of respect, flexibility and high-tech tools. Successful recruiters, aware about the rising early job hopping statistics of this generation also understand the "I want it all now" mentality of Gen-Y. This Generation expects to interact with recruiters who are high on brand value and courtesy. They want specifics about the company and the opportunities available at work during their stay in the company.
Gen - Y : The Communiqué :
- Find out what they want. They want freedom over structured style of communication, they like experiencing rather than learning; they prefer to relate than to react, they love networking, group work and expect to use technology more, to complete their jobs. Moreover, social media tools, such as Twitter and Face book, have reached the mainstream, forcing many traditional businesses to adopt new ways of communicating.
Keeping Gen - Y Engaged :
- Gen-Y, a perfect example of man being a social animal needs to be engaged the holistic way. Not just limited to compensation and monetary benefits, the Gen-Y need their share of frolic and care at work place. Building this engagement entails aligning Gen-Y with the organization culture, vision while recognizing and respecting his socio-cultural background thus enabling him to blend in with the organization.
Y Stay : Retention Strategies for Gen - Y :
- Gen-Y is seen by baby boomers with different work ethics. For them, this generation does not know what it's like to stick to a job or work their way up, the corporate ladder. They are flighty and impatient to grow. This has made companies to seek outside help to teach managers new skills in employee retention. Young workers are a company’s future and the manager who successfully motivates and sustains them will earn their loyalty for life.
