GEN Y'S IMPACTS ON ORGANIZATION: AN EXAMINATION OF GENERATIONAL EFFECTS ON WORK ATTITUDE AND HOW IT DIFFERS FROM PRIOR GENERATION

Description
Never before has the Indian workforce been made up of employees from four distinct generations. Each of these generations came of age at a distinct moment in history and the generational beliefs and behaviors of these employees extend to their view of work and management. The combination of a changing age profile in the workforce and the changing nature of the work tasks in the knowledge economy, demanding a higher level of skill and experience has been the trigger point for this research OB project at XLRI.

Never before has the Indian workforce been made up of employees from four distinct generations. Each of these generations came of age at a distinct moment in history and the generational beliefs and behaviors of these employees etend to their view of work and management. !he combination of a changing age profilein the workforce  and the changing nature of the work tasks in the knowledge economy, demanding ahigher level of skill and experience  has been the trigger point for this research # pro$ect at %&'I. Purpose and ignificance of the tudy !he purpose of this study is to provide a greater understanding of the age(related differences in work Page 3 of 13  attitudes and behaviour among employees organi)ation. It is important that organi)ations are aware of theissues* in particular* $ob satisfaction* work motivation and commitment* the relationships between $ob andfamily characteristics and work(related attitudes.!his research will utili)e +uantitative research methods to analy)e the correlation between differentgenerational cohorts and their attitudes towards work related issues. ,hile the research will analy)e somesignificant differences between the generational cohorts* it will also focus on finding some beliefs in commonamong the cohorts.If the various generational cohorts within an organi)ation have overlapping or complementary attitudes thissynergy can be a benefit for an organi)ation. -et differences between generations in the workplace cannegatively impact an organi)ation and is an important but often overlooked factor of diversity in theworkplace. Previous researchers have suggested that the different attitudes of the various generations canlead to conflict and loss of organi)ational effectiveness and efficiency. ommunication and a positiveorgani)ational culture can help to resolve friction between the generations as well as meeting eachgeneration/s desire for different rewards.In order to be effective and efficient* leaders and managers need to have as broad an understanding aspossible of the people they hire* supervise and associate with daily. Providing managers with detailedinformation on the values* attitudes and preferences of different generations provides one more essentialelement of information that managers can refer to when anticipating* evaluating and0or resolving issues in theworkplace.!he workforce issues previously identified must be continually addressed to produce an efficient and effectiveorgani)ation. Indeed* leaders* whether they be at the eecutive* mid( management* supervisory or subordinate level are* or should be* keenly aware of them. !his study will address the item In organi!ations,are there significant differences in employees attitudes towards work that align with generationalaffiliations?   #elimitations !his study/s survey responses will be limited to student from the %&'I* amshedpur 4P 15(16 batch andcolleagues from previous organi)ations. ,hile there are four generations in the current workforce* accordingto the literature* this report only documents attitudes of two generational cohorts eneration %* andeneration -. If the survey has enough representation from the #aby #oomers to provide any statisticallyvalid data* then the research will be etended to include three generations. Page 5 of 13
