Want to keep the Gen Y'ers in your office happy? Make sure that you embrace sustainability in a very public way. A new report from Johnson Controls tells us that 18- to 25 year-olds want evidence that their employers are going beyond the minimum levels of environmental compliance by embracing all things green on an everyday basis. According to Greenbiz , the OXYGENZ report surveyed 3,011 18- to 25-year-olds in the United States, U.K., Germany, India, and China, along with nearly 1,300 26- to 35-year-olds and almost 400 36- to 45-year-olds.
