According to a new study from Nintex entitled “The Gen Z Effect,” this new generation is having a direct impact on employers’ technology problem-solving and purchasing choices.
The report provides insight into how organizations should attract and retain this digitally-fluent generation.
“Gen Z grew up with technology in hand, and as they begin their careers, they aspire to do meaningful work,” said Eric Johnson, Nintex CEO. “It’s becoming increasingly important for organizations to leverage technologies that help all employees to perform at their best. One of the best ways to do that is with a process management and automation platform like Nintex, which makes it fast and easy to manage, automate and optimize any business process, simple or sophisticated, across the entire enterprise.”
80% of decision-makers were found to have selected a technology tool that was suggested by a Gen Z employee.
Furthermore, the research found that Gen Z employees are more focused on personal interest, rather than career longevity and are not keen on accepting the first job offer they receive.
Gen Z share plenty of knowledge and comfort with technology, but their concerns about workplace automation varied across regions. 57% in the U.S. were concerned that AI will cost them jobs, with only 30% sharing those concerns in the UK and 43% in New Zealand and Australia.
