Millennials have been burdened and blamed for societal shifts since emerging as a large part of the workforce. Now, Generation Z is taking the spotlight as these professionals make a significant impression on the workforce.
This younger generation is being heavily relied upon thanks to their digital nature and related skill sets that are needed for today’s technologically-driven work culture.
However, as a result of this focus on digitization, many Gen Zers lack the perks of in-person interactions. Still, these workers are aware of their surroundings, particularly in terms of the workplace and economic insecurities.
Moving forward, companies will need to adjust their operations, policies, and office design to address the evolving needs of this younger workforce.
Gen Zers have been at the forefront of conversation in terms of salary transparency, social responsibility, and technology-driven workspaces.
For instance, companies can no longer get away with simply filling offices with desks and chairs. In the future, video conferencing software, fast WiFi, smart lighting and heating systems, online meeting room booking platforms, and other advancements will be critical to a well-functioning office.
Additionally, companies will need to focus on providing Gen Zers a workspace that creates a safe environment with an emphasis on worthwhile messaging that shapes work culture.
