Generation Y

2010 was a turning point for Generation Y. As the first members of this generation approach their thirties and the worst economic slump of their lifetime begins to loosen its grip, we asked how the recession has impacted their attitudes and what can we expect next from them. Our survey was conducted the end of 2010 and the start of 2011. We surveyed over 500 generation Y candidates and held focus groups with over 60 of them.

 

Key findings

Talent

•  Just 54 percent of Gen Y'ers believe their jobs are secure

•  43 percent of the age bracket 20-22 year olds detailed that they have plans to emigrate

•  60 percent surveyed indicated they would expect a starting salary of between €24,000 and €30,000 (€23,000 - €32,000 – 2007 Figures)
