Gen Y and the downturn

I had an interesting chat with one of my clients the other day: how is Gen Y reacting to the downturn?

It was a fascinating chat – this generation has only seen “boom” times, which has fit very comfortably into an overall world view of self-actualisation / entitlement etc.  What happens when they are made redundant, or don’t get a bonus, or suddenly get no work-life balance when they now have to pick up the slack?  Is it a different reaction to us old dogs?

I manage a couple, but I work in an agency so I suspect they are not “normal” (no offense intended), if there is such a thing.

I’d love to see something about this.
