In the world of work you’ll find no fewer than 3 generations of people: generation X (born 1965/1979), generation Y (born 1980/1995) and generation Z (born from 1995). Although they certainly cohabit the same professional environment, their professional needs and expectations are not the same. The differences between the generations are striking, as demonstrated by the term “Millennials”, a concept referring to generation Y, and one which has been widely marketed over recent years.
Learning and Development
With campuses in Lille, Nice, Paris, London and Singapore, the EDHEC is one of the top 15 European Business Schools. Deeply international and directly connected to the world of business, it is well known for its excellent research as well as its capacity to train entrepreneurs and managers capable of pushing boundaries.
Attracting and retaining the millennial generation has become an essential factor to any thriving business. It is for this reason that organisations are needing to adapt their management style, revitalise their company culture and modify their expectations in order to be more appealing to their millennials.
Stress, especially work-related stress, can have a major impact on an individual’s mindset and well-being. Over recent years, it has been reported that a demanding work schedule can cause sleepless nights, headaches, or even chronic health conditions, consequently affecting a person’s professional and personal development.
