How to set-up a Y-Community in your company?

Y Community Buildingblocks

A Y-Community in your company? There are only advantages!

The format of a Y-Community is not important - it can be very informal or very formal. As long as it fits the company culture, it will be a valuable contributor to the job satisfaction of the (young) employees, ànd consequently to their productivity.  That was the conclusion of the Y-ADM experts. They defined 9 building blocks to help you set-up a Y-community!

During our brainstorming session in November 2018 on how to companies organise their Y-community, it was obvious that everybody had a different way to go about, had different experiences .. That lead to the idea to assemble these best practices in order to inspire others. 

Four evening working sessions filled with many ideas and discussion later, the hero's* of the ADM session on 13 June presented the building blocks that they identified and that can help a company to set up a Y-community. 

The most important conclusion of group though is that it does not matter how the community is organised, as long as it works for the (young) employees. In all examples it is clear that the company culture is reflected in the way the Y-community is set up and managed. 

On the "related" tab on this page, you will find the powerpoint of the evening, a write-up of the whole presentation.
