杂谈

With Wall Street in turmoil and a financial system in crisis mode, companies are facing another major challenge: figuring out how to manage a new crop of young people in the work force -- the millennial generation. Born between 1980 and 2001, the millennials were coddled by their parents and nurtured with a strong sense of entitlement. In this adaptation from 'The Trophy Kids Grow Up: How the Millennial Generation Is Shaking Up the Workplace,' Ron Alsop, a contributor to The Wall Street Journal, describes the workplace attitudes of the millennials and employers' efforts to manage these demanding rookies.

When Gretchen Neels, a Boston-based consultant, was coaching a group of college students for job interviews, she asked them how they believe employers view them. She gave them a clue, telling them that the word she was looking for begins with the letter 'e.' One young man shouted out, 'excellent.' Other students chimed in with 'enthusiastic' and 'energet

CORPORATE RECRUITERS GO BACK TO SCHOOL 
 
Industrial companies have traditionally favoured hiring “second-hand” MBAs – those who have cut their teeth in banking or management consultancy and want to move on. Now, this is changing.

In spite of recent concerns in the business school world that MBA

COST OF LIVING 
 
”Your money or your life.” The choice traditionally presented by the highwayman is supposed to have only one sensible answer. Money is, after all, no use to a corpse. Yet economists often study something rather like the highwayman's offer in an attempt to uncover the answer to an important question: how much is your life actually worth?

Like many awkward questions, this is one that has to be answered. Safety regulations save lives but also raise the cost of doing business, a cost we all pay through higher prices. Are they worth it? Our taxes pay for life-saving spending on road safety and fire fighting. Are they high enough, or too high?

So how much are we willing to spend to save a life? A traditional p

 身为柯尼卡美能达控股公司(Konica Minolta)Business Solutions U.S.A业务的总裁兼首席执行长,Jun Haraguchi会在公司活动上与温诺娜'贾德(Winona Judd)或Marshall Tucker Band等知名音乐人同台演出。他丝毫不担心这样做会损害自己在员工心目中的地位或商界领袖的形像。他完全投入到表演中,无论是弹奏吉他,夏威夷四弦琴还是吹奏口琴。Jun Haraguchi表示,他乐在其中,同时,这也是向员工展示自己“平易近人”的一种方式。

不仅如此,现年51岁的Haraguchi还相信在会议上开点玩笑并不会影响会议的严肃性。他说,“音乐能愉悦我的性情,我的生活也离不开幽默。”

Haraguchi每天要工作12个小时,以拓展公司在美国的彩色文档和印刷业务,而其竞争对手包括实力强大的施乐(Xerox)和惠普(Hewlett-Packard)。“我们的发展天地广阔,但蛋糕是有限的,我们需要员工付出前所未有的努力。而要创造一个员工乐于努力工作的环境,那么工作就必须变得愉快有趣。”

近些年来,为了在争夺全球客户的激烈竞争中取胜,工作、工作、再工作已经成为职业经理人们的口头禅。

这真是个谜。尽管全社会都在大力加强学龄前教育、确保所有的孩子都能完成12年制义务教育、着力提高社区大学的办学质量、努力增加对在校大学生的资助力度,可美国为何还存在高学历工人短缺的问题呢?

这种短缺从如下事实就可得到印证:顾主付给大学本科毕业生(未接受过研究生教育)的工资通常要比付给高中毕业生的工资多75%。而25年前,前者的工资通常只比后者高40%。

顾主总是会尽量聘用那些受教育程度较高的熟练工。因此这一现象一定程度上是劳动力市场需求所致。但它也与劳动力的供给有关。高学历工人的增长速度赶不上劳动力市场的需求速度。

哈佛大学的劳动力经济学家劳伦斯'卡兹(Lawrence Katz)说,美国首次出现了一代受教育程度未显著高于其父辈的本土出生男子。虽然美国妇女的受教育程度确实要高于其母亲那一代人,但还不足以抵消男子受教育程度的不足。

20世纪初时,多数美国人只接受过8年教育。在接下来的20年中,随着电子和其他技

FOREIGN STUDENT APPLICATIONS RISE IN US 
 
The number of foreign students applying to graduate schools in US rose for the second year in a row, according to a survey released yesterday.

The survey, which was conducted by the Council of Graduate Schools, said that this year's 8 per cent increase in foreign applications – which comes on the heels of last year's 12 per cent rise – was an indication that the US government's attempts at making the student visa process more user-friendly appeared to be working.

This year's increase was driven mainly by a growing number of applicants from India and China – the two countries that annually send the most students to the US. Applications from Chinese students to US graduate programmes were up 17 per cent, while the nu

Social networking hits the workplace 
 
Career-minded people discovered long ago that cultivating a wide circle of friends can reap a handsome payback in the jobs market. Now employers are tapping the address books of their employees by rewarding those who talent-spot on the company's behalf.

Almost half of UK employers offer staff an incentive to solicit job applications from friends and associates, according to the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development. Also on the increase are alumni programmes, which encourage former employees to feed back recruitment leads and consider rejoining the company in the future.

Growing enthusiasm for social networking has done much to popularise personal introduction.

“The market is acutely aware of the power of word of mouth,” says Richard Spragg, communications manager at EPCglobal, a
