Gen Y hardest to work with
Workers of other generations cite attitude problems of Gen Y, such as being arrogant, impatient or abrupt, as a common reason why they find working with Gen Y difficult, according to the study by training, coaching and consultancy organisation Digne Consult Asia Pacific.
On the other hand, Gen Y employees may generally have fewer difficulties working with older colleagues because they can adapt to change and are flexible working with older generations, said Mr Frank Kuijsters, Digne Consult's director.
But Gen Y may not take as well to baby boomers because the latter resemble their parents, he added.
The firm polled 3,500 employees, from last October to this January, to understand inter- generational issues here.
The study was commissioned by the Tripartite Alliance for Fair Employment Practices (Tafep), whose members comprise unions, the Government and employers.
