What Gen Z Workers Really Want

It’s not what you think

The oldest members of Gen Z are turning 25 this year. As this cohort (born between 1997-2002) enters the workforce, people leaders are asking themselves how to manage these newcomers. But those who expect them to be carbon copies of the millennial generation are in for a surprise.

This youngest generation in the workforce is more racially and ethnically diverse than previous generations. They’re on track to be the best-educated generation yet, and they’ve arguably been more impacted by the pandemic than their older colleagues. This report surveyed 1000 employees between the ages of 18 and 24 to find out what Gen Z really want from work and their future careers—and what employers can do to keep this young cohort engaged.

What you’ll learn:

  • Gen Z’s significantly different and unexpected attitudes towards work
  • What motivates younger employees to move into management-level positions
  • How long they tend to stay with their current employer
