This is a very ‘hot’ topic among HR practitioners, one of the largest HR forum even discussed it in depth in a special session late last year.
Generation Y is a generation growing up with the development of wireless technology, the Internet and social media. A generation wanting things to happen fast, whether it is a change or a process to achieve results. It influences how they behave in the environment. The rise of social media provides a place for generation Y to ‘show themselves’. Lately, we are very familiar with the term narcissism. Social media allows them to demonstrate their ego.
