Besides winning over young talents, it will be more
and more striking for companies to keep them on the
long run as well. 54% of Generation Y expects to have
2–5 workplaces, while 16% count with 6–9 employers
during their career⁹ (compared to 2–3 jobs Generation
X:ers, and 1–2 Baby Boomers calculated with). That’s a
lot of job hopping. Recruiting and training a newcomer
at the company is a lot of time, effort and money. And
by the time your recruit starts to find his way through
the maze of a corporation, well, he just bids goodbye.
Maybe. Why not try work-life blending instead of
work-life balance, career safety instead of job safety
and flexible working hours for young families?

Wouldn’t it be easier to create
an environment where people
can strive and feel so good
that they don’t want to leave?
