The Millennials or Gen Y, born between 1980 and 2000 are the largest group and will emerge in shaping and dominate the Malaysian workplace in near future. However, Gen Y have earned bad reputation, as their characteristics and work expectations are very different from their predecessors.

In reality, Gen Y are a fantastic asset to the business because they are flexible, adaptable and their work ethic and general way of thinking can improve and transform the business. Therefore, we encourge SMEs, Entrepreneurs, Business Owners, Managers & HR practitioners to join us to understand this generation and develop strategies that bring out the best of the Gen Y to work with you and produce exponential results for your organization
