The generation known for being the most tech-savvy is also among the most difficult to retain. As the Baby-Boomers trickle into retirement, securing the leadership pipeline is quickly become one of the most serious HR problems of the decade.

    Engaging Gen Y employees successfully is also important when they represent a segment of your customer base.

    This is an important point, as much as Gen Y looks for fast-paced career development and advancement that comes with moving between employers is a confusing and cautionary tale to employers to review resumes thoroughly when looking for future leader potential.

    Longevity in a candidates career history can be a great indicator of loyalty and commitment, but it could also be that the employee is stagnant in their career, whether that be by choice or due to capability. All should weigh in on good indicators of future success and retention.

    I read this with interest as gen y might be known as the job hoppers but should we be also questioning how secure jobs are ? With wide spread re structuring/ retrenchment its a no wonder loyalty is being lost? It does go both ways?
