Seventy-six per cent of employees at Energy Fiji Ltd in 2021 were below the age of 40 years.
This, according to the electricity provider’s 2021 annual report that was presented in Parliament last week.
EFL chief executive officer Hasmukh Patel said they represented the new millennials.
“We have marked 55 years of our very rich, diverse and cultural existence as an organisation,” Mr Patel said.
“Our generational leaders have very solidly passed on their great learning to the next generation in the last five decades.
“With the millennials being more tech savvy and more accustomed to the world wide web (www), we are currently expanding on our in-house Moodle App to capture the learnings electronically.
“We have now commenced developing, writing and compiling technical, management, leadership, employee relations and values training programs with the talent internally in-house.
“We are now forecasting the shift or movement in the generational gap in the next five to 10 years.
“The survival of either an individual or an organisation purely rests on new ideas. New ideas generate from the exposure the individual has had.
“With new ideas and new themes, the workplace environment changes. There is absolutely a new dimension to the workplace.”
