Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: Cheltenham Edward Elgar 2012Description: xxiii, 311 p.ISBN: 9781782540328.Subject(s): Personnel management | Entry-level employees | Generation Y - Employment | Age distribution - Demography - Economic aspects | Diversity in the workplace - ManagementDDC classification: 658.300842 Summary: Shifting demographics around the world have created a unique historical phenomenon in which a large cohort of employees (i.e., post-war Baby Boomers) are nearing retirement, and a new cadre of younger workers are being recruited to replace them. These twenty-something year-olds, often referred to as ‘Gen Y’ or Millennials, represent the workforce of the future and come with their own set of expectations, demands, and work habits. The contributors to this volume, drawn from countries around the world, document the cultural, historical, and social context surrounding this phenomenon. The international perspective makes it possible to examine cross-cultural similarities and differences in HRM practices. This timely book provides an understanding of the new workforce in multiple countries and settings and a valuable reference as scholars and employers seek to understand the values, beliefs, and expectations of the next generation of workers.
