Generation Z is here, and they are working alongside you right now. Do you know how to manage them? Do you know enough about their expectations to be effective as a leader?
Let’s do a quick tutorial on this latest generation to enter the workforce, born from the mid-1990s to mid-2000s.
Gen Zers are independent, creative and much more entrepreneurial in how they approach work. Watching their parents struggle to make ends meet during the 2008 recession and growing up during the evolution of startup culture and the gig economy (think Uber) likely inspired their initiative.
This is good news! We want people with an entrepreneurial spirit. It means they may work as though your business is their business.
