We’ve been hearing about Millennials (born 1980-1995) for years now. They are already the majority of our workforce, and will account for 75 percent of it by 2030.
Millennials sometimes get a bad rap. They’re often type cast as entitled and accused of job hopping. However, as they’re getting older and settling into their careers, their behavior is becoming more understood. Millennials, watched their Baby Boomer parents put work over their personal lives, and they are not willing to make that example. All workers are actually benefitting from their workplace preferences, as many of the changes they’ve brought about benefit workers of all ages.
Companies have – and still do – spend a great deal of time trying to understand Millennials. As they continue to move along in their careers and develop into management roles, however, Generation Z (born after 1995) are poised to take over the incoming workforce as the newest generation.
So what do you need to know about Generation Z to onboard them into your workplace? How are they different from Millennials – who could potentially be managing your Gen Z new hires? Our infographic breaks down the generational differences in your workplace.
