Read a insightful survey that I found on the net about a study about Malaysian’s Gen Y(millennials) workforce by PwC. This reports summarize the “turn-ons” and “turn-offs” of a Malaysian Gen-Y worker. This report provides some clues on how a manager especially from the Gen-X and Baby Boomer era should manage a Gen-Y worker.
After reading it, I find that this report is also very useful for any marketer who wants to sell to Gen-Ys. Like it or not, Gen-Ys are going to contribute the bulk of consumer spending in the near future. Understanding what they turn them on is key for any marketer.

Michael Jackson is a great singer and I would always remember him for all the fantastic songs that he brought to us. I basically grew up listening to his songs and my favorite song of his is “Man In The Mirror “ . I’m planning to watch the Michael Jackson Memorial live tomorrow to rekindle my childhood memories.
