“…by 2014 there will be nearly 63 million Generation Y employees in the workforce, while the number of baby boomers in the workplace will dip from 59 million today to fewer than 48 million, predicts human resources firm NAS Recruitment Communications, Cleveland. The number of Generation X workers in the workforce will remain about 41 million from now until 2014, the HR firm says.”

Some suggested business network tips in recruiting this generation suggests that they will be a rather persnickety group to deal with. At least their expectations contrast greatly from the retiring Boomers.

“Today’s workers are totally different individuals,” says Stacey Spencer, vice president and CIO of managed services for Uni-Data & Communications in Flushing, N.Y. “They have a different perspective on what the marketplace is and what their job is.
