I Work to Live, Not Live to Work: How Generation Y Talks About Work, Career, and Work-Life Balance

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This study examines the meanings that members of Generation Y prescribe to the concepts of work, career, and work-life balance and how these meanings will influence the workplace using the perspective of Jablin’s (1982) organizational assimilation. Findings suggest that members of Generation Y assess having a career more positively than "just working". Additionally, work-life balance is a priority, but one that many members of Generation Y do not feel is entirely achievable.
