Welcoming Gen Z into the workforce

Despite an unstable economy and businesses tightening their belts in response; unemployment rates remain low and for every company that is going through redundancies, new jobs are being created elsewhere. 

Just because the economy is slowing down, that doesn’t mean there’s fewer jobs to fill.

Once the largest group of workers, baby boomers are now leaving the workforce in droves, having for the most part reached retirement age.

 With Gen X a smaller group, Millennials now make up the largest working force, while Gen Z enters the workforce.

This generational shift in the workplace signals a shift in communication styles, values and drivers. 

BBC Worklife’s article written by Ali Francis really explains what is important for Gen Z in the workplace: https://www.bbc.com/worklife/article/20220613-gen-z-the-workers-who-want-it-all#:~:text=According%20to%202022%20research%20by,hybrid%20or%20totally%20remote%20work
