Gen Z just became the largest generation in the world and is also set to be the most diverse generation, both in racial makeup as well as how they define themselves as complex individuals who aren’t into labels.
And, as with past generations, the workforce will have to figure out how to welcome and integrate this generation, which will comprise 40% of talent as well as consumers, by 2030.
Co-founder of Door of Clubs and Gen Z expert, Pranam Lipinski, was recently featured as a speaker for CADIA Connects to share what this new generation is all about and how to both appeal to and connect with them in the work setting. This young generation, like each before, has a few key facets based on their lived experience growing up that contribute to how they orient to the world and what they expect as they come of age to join the working world.
These young folks, who currently range in age from 9-26 have had unprecedented access to information about - well – pretty much everything from a young age. They are high on empathy, while also suffering rampantly from anxiety.
To prepare for this generation as they join the working ranks, following are the three most important things to Gen Z’ers and three management tips to help bring them into the fold and to help them thrive.
