first_img Comments are closed. Workers are more career-driven the younger they are, a new poll reveals. A study of more than 5,800 people shows 78 per cent of UK workers under theage of 25 think they are more ambitious than their parents were at their age. The survey, by internet job site reed.co.uk, shows that the younger a personis, the more ambitions they are likely to have. In all, 85 per cent of under18s feel more ambitious than their parents were. More than half of those under 18 say they would prefer to reach the top oftheir career rather than achieve a balanced lifestyle. However, things are very different for those aged 26 and over. Only 24 percent see reaching the top of their career as their main goal, while threequarters prioritise achieving a good work-life balance. Dan Ferrandino, director of reed.co.uk, said: “Are we seeing the end of‘Generation X’? It seems the lack of national energy they experienced underJohn Major has prompted an opposite reaction of drive and ambition in the under25s, and many are setting their sights on the top.” Previous Article Next Article Career-driven youngsters set their sights on the topOn 4 Mar 2003 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos.last_img
