Generation Y

Generation Y: realising the potential presents the findings of research on young finance professionals.

The report looks at their traits; what attracts them to an organisation; what keeps them with a particular employer; their career aspirations; and the implications for employers trying to attract, develop and retain them.

Produced in collaboration with Mercer, the report is based on a survey of 3,200 finance professionals in 122 countries. A number of leading organisations from around the world were also interviewed and shared their insights into managing this population in the workplace.

The report is one of the largest-ever studies of Generation Y finance professionals (those born between 1980 and 1993), a generation who will shape and influence our profession for the decades ahead.
