Employers Greatly Welcomed Administration Tactics on Post-80s Employees
The Anti-Express Railway Movement and the fight for the preservation of Choi Yuen Tsuen Village have made “Post-80s” (the generation born between 1980-1989) into a hot new term. However, the term “Post-80s” seems to carry a negative connotation. Without knowing it, society has segregated these youths with a label. They are thought to be naïve, self-centred, anti-society and disobedient. These kinds of evaluation and feelings come mostly from the management level of companies. They seem to be at a lost as to how to manage the Post-80s. It also clearly shows the difference in thinking and methods of working between generations.
Our Employee Development Service held a human resource sharing session on 5 July. The meeting was titled “When Boss Post-80s Employees Meets Post-80s” and taught administration tactics on Post-80s employees. It was greatly appreciated by the human resource managers. It was so popular that we held another one of these meetings on 5 August and had a full house. Many employers reflected the urgent need for the development of management tactics to handle their Post-80s staff. In a short span of only 2 months, from May to July, our Employee Development Service has already received requests from five companies for service in this area.
When it comes to managing di fferent generations, employers must be careful not to stereotype the Post-80s. Employers and employees from both generations should appreciate, accept each other and take the initiative to communicate with each other.
