Episode Description

Today’s buzz: Millennials at work. They’re here! Millennials, aka Gen Y, are the post-Gen X demographic born between the early 1980s–2000s. Diverse, well-educated, highly expressive, they’ve already made a unique mark on commerce, work, social media. We’ve heard their mindset and outlook on life and work are different from other generations’. Myth vs. truth? What do these newcomers really want, expect, need in their careers today and in the future? The experts speak. Lindsey Nelson, SAP: “I personally despise the word Millennial…We are constantly and consistently stereotyped and often not provided the opportunity to voice our individual inputs. Some would be shocked to see how different all of our wants and needs are.” Thibaud De Keyzer, SAP: “Technology is like air to us. We are Generation Y. You can call us ‘Net Gen’ers.’” Erwil Heath, SAP: “It always seems impossible until it is done” (Nelson Mandela). Join us for Early Talent: What Millennials Really Want from the Future Workplace.
