Have you ever met Gen Z at work?

Have you ever collaborated with members of Generation Z in the workplace? 

Generation Z refers to the members of the generation of people born between the mid-1990s and early 2010s, behind the millennials. Growing up in an era marked by rapid technological advancements, Gen Z is recognized for its diversity, tech savvy, social consciousness, and efficiency.

Does salary matter?

While salary remains a crucial factor in job decisions, a study conducted by Deloitte reveals that Generation Z places less emphasis on salary compared to other generations.

Prioritize the values and culture of a company

In a recent survey by Monster, 83% of Gen Z candidates highlighted the importance of a company’s commitment to diversity and inclusion when selecting an employer. This underscores their desire to work for a company that aligns with their values and offers opportunities for personal and professional growth.

Flexible work formats

Furthermore, Gen Z professionals favor a streamlined work approach but also seek flexibility in work formats, including remote work, hybrid modes, or freelancing. Work-from-home options can be particularly appealing to them. Besides, they leverage social media tools to enhance communication and collaboration, demonstrating their adaptability to modern work dynamics.

Work-life balance and personal well-being

While they value a strong work ethic, Gen Z strives for work-life balance and personal well-being, embodying the philosophy of “Work hard, play hard.” This approach encourages the exploration of different aspects of the work process, fostering innovation.

How can I attract and recruit Gen Z talent?

To attract and recruit Gen Z talent effectively, companies can implement strategies that address their priorities:

  1. Emphasise company values such as embracing creativity and ethnic and racial diversity
  2. Offer additional benefits beyond the salary such as the concert ticket, staycation package, gym membership, and time paid off
  3. By developing training, leadership, and internship programs, companies can connect with potential new-generation employees

Understanding the unique perspective of Generation Z can create a harmonious environment where each generation learns from one another, promoting inclusivity and diversity. Each generation brings its strengths to the table, fostering innovation that greatly benefits the company.
