One of the major factors that managements of contemporary organizations in the US will have to deal with is how to engage the employees who are from Gen Z. Also called post-Millennials; this term aptly fits their description: the generation of the workforce that has emerged after the Millennials. The generation that followed the Millennials; Gen Z is the term that is applied to the generation that was born roughly from the mid-90’s to the mid-2000’s.
A major chunk of the American workplace is now being populated by the Millennials, with some estimates putting their percentage of the workforce at about three fourths of the entire working population by 2030. The American corporations will have to come up with strategies for dealing with the workforce from Gen Z, as this will come into the workforce in the near future. They will cohabit with the Millennials for a while.
The leader of the next generation of the workforce will have to come with a clear understanding of how these generations work, as well as how they work with each other in tandem. They need the skills, knowledge and tools to get the best out of these generations of the workforce.
Characteristics peculiar to the Millennials and Gen Z
Their early exposure that the Millennials and Gen Z have to technology and the social media means that they do not have to be imparted these skills. More importantly, their work should revolve round these tools, as these are what they have grown up with. They are more likely to herald quick changes into technologies and learning methods, since they can be considered conjoined twins of technology. They also have greater expectations. They are likely to be less loyal to employers, and could be better multitaskers. With the recent economic slowdown being green in their memory; these generations could also be thrifty.
