46% of the full-time U.S. workforce is now composed of Gen Z & Millennials

As the first generation of true digital natives, being exposed to social media and mobile systems, Gen Z has been recognized as the hypercognitive generation with the ability to cross-reference data and integrate it virtually and in person.

Millennials are motivated and work long hours; they want to contribute beyond their job descriptions and move up in the organization.

What do the young workers want from the workplace?

 There are five elements of well-being that Gallup has identified which are: 

  • Career
  • Social 
  • Financial
  • Community 
  • Physical

Diversity and inclusion are essential to these generations, and they are looking for organizations to care about their employee’s well-being and open, transparent, and ethical leadership.

They want bold actions to address moral blind spots and know that their work positively impacts others and the world. 

This is a great time to pause, see if your company is aligned with the needs of the new generations. 

Do the employees think the team is committed to quality work? 

Do they feel like there is honest collaboration within the organization? 

Do workers feel like their concerns will be heard, regardless of rank?
