When newly hired company employees who utilize social media were asked how they would feel if their boss requested to become a friend, 42.5% replied they would be unhappy. With females in particular that response reached nearly 60%. In a separate survey, newly hired workers were asked to name the highest rank or position in the company to which they aspired. Only 11.9% gave “president,” the lowest figure since 1990. On the other hand, the title of “division head” garnered 23.2%, the highest figure ever. It would appear that overall, young people’s ambition to ascend to the very top of corporate management has declined.
