How Art & Management Meet?

Emda CEO Nurit Berman explains: “While X-generation managers (born in the 1960s and 70s) know that their existence depends on the organization, Y-generation employees (born in the 80s and 90s) feel the organization is just as dependent on them. They know everything, they are information wizards, and they also have a tremendous need to obtain information about everything that’s going on in the organization. As far as they’re concerned – everything is questionable”. Berman goes on to explain that supervisors find this hard to accept, because they experience this attitude as disrespectful, but does not necessarily agree with them: “If you give your employees what they need, you are bound to reap the benefits”, she states. “They are good employees, inquisitive and highly committed to their job”.
