Dr. Pham will discuss survey results of a study of Generation Y's self image and how other generations perceive them. "Gen Y lacks willingness to pay their dues." "Young professionals in this millennia work better in teams." Whether you are a Gen Y person or older person working with one, you'll want to know how Gen Y views itself in comparison to how others generations view them.

Anecdotal perceptions about Generation Y or the Millenials, born between 1978 and 1995:
-Gen Y lacks willingness to pay their dues.
-Today?s young employees expect frequent rewards.
-They?re digital natives and can wield technology best.
-Young professionals in this millennia work better in teams.
