Bangalore: We can’t deny that the young working professionals in their 20s and early 30s are changing the workplace. These professionals are tech savvy and are obsessed with social networking and their laptops.

According to the CISCO 2011 Connected World Technology Report, one out of three young employees as well as college students feels that the internet is important as any other basic amenities like air, water, food and shelter.

Many of us can’t stay away from checking updates on social networking sites such as facebook or twitter or even checking our personal mails while at work.  A recent study of more than 1000 professionals reveals that working professionals check their social networking websites as often they check their official mails. With regards to the activities at work, facebook ranks among the top three.

Although, statistics shows that Generation Y employees want to access their social networking websites while they are at work, however, 54% of the organizations restrict their employees from visiting networking sites while they are at work according to a survey by Robert Half Technology.

Here’s an infographic designed by Sales Force Ripple that depicts what the Generation Y wants from their organizations and how the HR departments are adapting to the changes.
