London – The latest issue of ERJ includes a report on an interesting programme at Trelleborg to improve the way its recruits and retains Generation-Y people - those born between the early 1980s and the early 2000s – across its global workforce.
The study identified a complex set of the requirements for young people coming into the workforce, from IT and communications facilities to concern about career mobility and corporate social responsibility.
The Swedish group is also now looking at raising awareness of the needs of Gen-Y employees among its middle and senior managers, and removing any barriers between the different age groups.
ERJ plans to revisit this topic over the coming months and would welcome your comments on efforts to bridge the generation gap within the rubber industry.
