Meet Gen Z. They didn’t experience the typical childhood. The first generation of the 21st century came of age during the most disruptive decade of the last century.
Born 1996-2009, Gen Z’s arrival marks the end of clearly defined roles, traditions and experiences. Zs are more cautious and pragmatic, but they are also inspired to change the world – and chances are, they will. After all, Zs have been taught the skills to successfully defy the norm.
While the spotlight has been on Gen Y/ Millennials for several years, Z is about to step into the limelight, and they are nothing like their Millennial elders. Undoubtedly, their arrival to the workplace will create another wave of change.
Drawing from considerable research, XYZ University’s presentation brings Z’s unique traits, expectations, and values to life, and identifies what organizations will need to do to prepare for Z and engage them as employees, consumers, members, and volunteers.
