Gen-Y jobseekers 'keen to join the workforce'
Younger generations are keen to join the workforce and become part of a traditional office structure, results of a new survey have revealed.

Conducted by Vodafone, the poll showed that a fifth of 16 to 25-year-olds questioned said they were against flexible working because they feel that it reduces a sense of community at work, Recruiter reports.

Furthermore, a third of those questioned said that joining the workforce will help them to alleviate boredom.

Around 60 per cent of 14 to 18-year olds claim that the social aspect of working is one of the most important factors about employment for them, aside from their salary.

David Cumberbatch, director at business psychology firm Xancam, said that bosses need to "work hard to think and act in ways that will get the best out of Generation Y" so that they can be "successful in inspiring and developing talented individuals".

According to research by FreshMinds Talent, much of the Generation-Y population value salary over responsibility at work, Onrec.com reports.
