The biggest problem with the Gen Y issue is that everybody thinks if they looked into the matter once and they implemented the essential changes in operation (succession planning, flexibility, feedback, individual responsibility), then it’s all done, and the “manage Gen Y” box is ticked.

All the stupidest ideas of the world have been tried and tested to make employees happy, because everybody knows nothing can be worse for an organization than the downward spiral of workforce fluctuation. One disgruntled employee makes two, two make three, then the first letter of resignation is submitted, followed by another and we’re waist deep in trouble. Eye-wateringly expensive training programmes, junior employees everywhere with their disastrously low price/value ratio. Nothing can be worse than that.

Working with #nofilter.
We feel good when we are in a no-filter, straightforward, transparent environment. So, after 10-15 years of experience in multinational companies, SMEs, startups, regional businesses, we all decided 5 years ago to ditch our corporate coats and form a team of experts coming from the most diverse professions. We’ve been working together ever since to create great places for ourselves and our whole generation. What keeps us together is openness, dynamism and unvarnished honesty. If you have the same values, we’ll love working together.More about us arrow_forward
