Gen Z traits in workplace
We help companies scale. In order to do this, we need to have a keen interest in what people want from a job, at every age group. DMCG Global Co-Founder & CEO Justin McGuire shares his insight on Gen Z....
Being forty, I find myself reading more and more about Generation Z (born mid-1990s to 2000s). It is not just about the millennial brigade.
We are also looking at opening up a DMCG Global Academy in Singapore to bring in new talents, I want to learn.
Below five things I have picked up from my reading about Gen Z. Feel free to let me know if you agree or not.
They care about their salary : Typically they have grown up in an era of instability and crave stability. Gen Z do not chase good causes at the cost of security.
They are self-sufficient : They collaborate well in teams but need personal rather than team-based rewards to keep motivated.
Flexibility and Openness is key : They take full advantage of tech and want to work flexibly and communicate efficiently.
They expect good tech : Technology is central to Gen Z and it can dictate choice of jobs, Gen Z are tech-obsessed and learn fast.
They want to “do good” : Gen Z-ers expect more from employers when it comes to responsible business. Firms need to have a clear sustainable strategy that their employees can feel a part of.
