We don’t give Gen Z the credit they deserve especially since they’re the driving force behind the future of work. Yep, that intern or recent grad you’ve been managing the past few weeks — you know, the one you’ve complained about at least once a day — will shape how you work five years from now.
We’ve seen it already with millennials, who are prioritizing work-life balance and pushing for flexible, remote work options. By 2025, illennials will make up 75 percent of the workforce, and we have already seen companies evolve so they can cater to millennial work values and best retain talent. (Think: remote work, flex time, an empathetic environment, goals aligned with personal values, etc.)
