The young are competitive and ambitious. This makes them as hungry as a wolf for knowledge. They are eager learners. They are willing to put in the efforts to learn more and more. They are not satisfied with what they know.
They see themselves as fledglings who have a long way to go. Because they know they are new, they have a humble attitude. This humble attitude of a learner makes them quicker at tasks. Their eagerness to rise makes them smart and innovative learners.
Less of Commitments
Generally, people in their twenties and thirties have the least family and other commitments. They are able to devote more time to work than their older colleagues. Consequently, they are more focussed. Their work becomes a priority in life which is very important for effective working.

They are willing to travel to places as they have less commitments. This enables the business to grow and expand in other places. Older people prefer not to travel. This may be due to health reasons (very often) and more commonly due to family commitments.
Greater Sense of Responsibility
Most of the youth are ambitious to make a certain kind of life for themselves in their future. They are chasing their dreams for themselves! They wish to be financially independent. This makes them more responsible towards their own lives which reflects in their work.
Moreover, being more ambitious, they are ready to take up greater responsibilities at the workplace. They view their responsibilities in a positive way and do not shirk from them. This attitude keeps an uplifted and cheerful mood in the organization as the employees are not complaining and nagging.
Together with greater intelligence, an eagerness to grow and learn, prioritization of work and a greater sense of responsibility, the youth perform more efficiently than anyone else at the workplace.
