We’ve recently conducted a survey to map the relative importance of the most important Engagement Drivers in relation to employees in general and also regarding Generation Y, in our region. The questionnaire was completed by HR professionals in July -August, 2016 in 6 countries.
Some interesting learnings:
- Generally we can state that for Generation Y the most important divers are; ‘Development and Career opportunities’, ‘My opinion counts’ and ‘Work-life balance’. It shows the growing need and importance of a meaningful job with good balance of private life.
- This last driver seems to be a new and an increasingly growing tendency in each country, especially in Poland and Slovenia, where ‘Work-life balance’ received far the highest rates among all factors.
- Good collaboration as a main driver in general drooped significantly for Gen Y in each country suggesting that Gen Y prefers an individualistic development approach rather than a collaborative one, which might be addressed as misperception.
- The last in the row was ‘Identifying with the vision’ in both cases that establishes the perception that employees have a tendency to work for money and good opportunities rather than aligning with a cause.
