Generation Y workers are often painted in a negative light when it comes to things like job loyalty, but new research shows that may just be a myth.

    Finally some positive research. It's so annoying to be labelled fickle just because I want to be valued, and do valued work for an organisation.

    This does come a bit late though, Gen Z have been entering the workforce for a few years now, and soon we will be seeing more and more Gen Z Graduates. I'm surprised after fifteen years Gen Y information still gets thrown around like it is cutting edge.

    Even in my current workforce the vapid grins of self congratulatory managers as they mention that a workforce strategy needs to take into account the Gen Y personality drives me crazy. The fact that they ignore our industry and education levels of the workforce in favour of Gen Y 'facts' bothers me even more.
