How To Handle The New Generation At Work
Understanding the new generation of workers
Gen Z are the generation that do not settle for less. The bigger, the better.
So what motivates Gen Z at work?
Gen Z value a sense of community
By creating a community atmosphere within the office, companies can encourage deeper connections. However, this can prove quite difficult to achieve if most employees work from home. As a result, companies must consider the factors to meet the requirements and needs of the younger generation, and flexible workplace providers could be the answer.
Coworking allows members of Generation Z to surround themselves with familiar faces and frequently hold networking and lunch events, allowing them to build a tight community and sharing their experience in social media.
Overall Gen Z's ace is technology and they love to show what they do and how they do it. Sharing on a global level is what they do and in order to share unique content, they demand unique spaces. Bright colours, geometric shapes, modern or vintage touch to any location, will attract the new generation.
They need an office which offers the last trends: recreational areas with couches and games, healthy snacks with vegan and vegetarian options, gym or fitness discounts at the nearest facilities and high-tech meeting rooms to facilitate hybrid working.
Understanding the work ethic of Generation Z can help us to understand how the way of work is changing. When it comes to employers, this generation is more selective. They want honesty and clear ethics. However, given the right environment, they are prepared to put in the effort.
