This research paper closely analyzes Gen Z in order to better understand their views, preferences, and expectations of the workforce. We are living in the era with the largest generational diversity to date. The idea of a multigenerational workforce has become an integral part of the workforce itself. With Gen Z’s coming of age and beginning to enter the workforce en masse – with them a unique set of skills, values, and expectations. It becomes of utmost importance for businesses and organizations to understand Gen Z workforce preferences as the demographic group is determined to shape the workforce. As Gen Z will compose almost 30% of the workforce by 2025, it is time to deep dive into this generation’s preferences and adapt workplace policies and procedures, allowing for the creation of a symbiotic relationship between the generation and the workforce.
