Gen Z is starting the hit the workforce, and it won’t be long before they bring innovation and change. Here are some of the ways this group of people will revolutionize the workplace:
- They are tech-savvy but still value human interactions. Up to 90% of gen Zers report wanting some form of human connection in their work and say they enjoy teamwork. They appreciate the opportunity to provide feedback and suggestions on how projects are going or new ways to do things.
- They have a strong desire for work-life balance. Nearly half of gen Zers reports that work-life balance is a top priority. They are likely to expect to be able to unplug from office technology after hours, want wellness benefits such as meditation and yoga classes, and seek flex time and opportunities for remote work.
- They want feedback. Annual performance reviews won’t be enough for gen Zers; 60% want regular check-ins with their managers – weekly, if not daily.
- They have a healthy attitude about failure. They generally see failure as an opportunity to grow and learn, something that leads to innovation and positive change.
