There’s been an awful lot written about the so called millennial generation, and their impact on the workplace. Whilst the general perception of them is of an entitled group who expect the world to fall at their feet, a recent study suggests that they may actually have a point.
The study suggests that young people often feel that they’re left to their own devices in the workplace, and given little support when it comes to acquiring new knowledge or skills.
“It is really serious when young people feel that they must assume responsibility for their own work ability. The employer, of course, has a large responsibility for creating good conditions in working life and one should not expect young people to assume such a large responsibility,” the authors say.
