Gen Y sets expectations high

Posted: Updated:

Like it or not, Generation Y is here and here to stay. But while most people are just grateful to have a job these days, they expect more.

This is the generation that always got a trophy or ribbon for just participating. They were always told they were bright and talented and that they could do whatever they wanted.

Sometimes that can cause problems in the workplace, says David Tyson, who trains corporate employees.

But Tyson said managers should recognize that sometimes flexibility is okay and to expect to be asked why.

"We have to tell them more than what they should do. They need to understand why it's important to the company, why it's important for the department and why it's important for themselves because we brought them up that way," he said.

He thinks it is important to keep them somewhat happy because they are the ones who will take over.
