Get ready for Generation Z, because they are coming to a workplace near you.
Currently aged between 10 and 24, Gen Zs are 4.6 million strong in Australia and number just short of one million in New Zealand. By 2025, these post-Millennials will make up 27 percent of the workforce.
For the first time, we have five generations participating in our workforce. What can we expect from this newest group? Well, they are the first generation to be raised on mobile devices and social media – most won’t remember a world without Netflix, Spotify, Instagram and Snapchat. As well as differing experiences, it is becoming apparent they have got different expectations from the older Gen Y cohort too.
In this session, Paul provided a snapshot of how a selection of Talent Leaders on both sides of the Tasman are adjusting their strategies to attract GenZennials. Then we had the opportunity to hear from a group of Gen Z HR students/future Talent management professionals. Paul teased out their career expectations, hopes and fears, and the drivers that attract them when weighing up different employers.
