Трудовое поведение современной работающей молодежи: духовно-нравственные основы и практики

Эфендиев А. Г., Чермошенцева Е. С.

Modern youth, their attitudes, norms, and behavioral characteristics are some of the important objects of discussion in social science. It is widely believed that the differences between the current generation of young people and their parents have a revolutionary point. But how well-founded are these opinions? To what extent are these differences realized in the main area - the labor practices of the current young generation? Our article is based on a massive empirical study of young people at work and we seek answers to these questions. We focused on the value and ethical foundations of the behavior of young people in employment: what is the attitude of the modern young person to labor, to the profession, to the organization where they work, what are the rules of interaction with colleagues, supervisors, etc. Our comparative analysis is based on the results of three studies (2016, 2018, 2019) devoted to the study of the work values and practices of contemporary Russian workers. The results of our research have shown that working Russian youth combines features of romantic optimism and maximalism, initiative and insufficient development of personal responsibility, and elements of dependency. At the same time, it was found that there are no really significant and systemic differences between generations in major aspects of labor behavior.
