The event was attended by Władysław Kosiniak-Kamysz, the Minister of Labour and Social Policy, and Jacek Męcina, the State Secretary at the Ministry. Representatives of youth organizations and foundations also participated in the debate, highlighting its interdisciplinary nature.
Specialist's Voice: Expectations of Generation Y
Anna Kulawiak, Team Leader at SSC/BPO representing the Antal company, shared her insights into what Generation Y expects from companies. She emphasized that young people, who are currently entering the job market, are undeniably ambitious and full of creativity. For them, stable employment alone is not enough. They want to be engaged, contribute to the company's success, and feel that their work matters. In return, they expect opportunities for personal and professional development, and an appropriate organizational culture that allows them to pursue their passions and interests.
The debate was an important step towards understanding and meeting the expectations of Generation Y. Only through open dialogue and the exchange of experiences across different sectors can we build a future that benefits both employers and employees.
