Millenials are no longer the newest kids in the working world, as the first group of generation Z (born between 1994 and 2010) graduated from college this spring!
When hiring this year’s crop of college grads, it’s important to understand what they value in a career: opportunities for growth, constant connection through technology and work-life balance.
This generation has similarities to millennials, like a desire to be mentored at their place of employment and student loans to pay off. But research shows that they are even more entrepreneurial, loyal, flexible and realistic in their approach to careers and purchasing.
About a third of Generation Z desires to move into a management role within the next 5 years and nearly half believes it will be challenging to work with their older, Baby Boomer counterpart.
Adding a fourth generation to the workplace just made things a bit more interesting.
