Generation Z (~ born between 1995-2012) entered the workplace two years ago, making it the most recent generational cohort. This session will consider the characteristics among generational cohorts, including areas of differences and friction, and the implications for the workplace. To better understand Gen. Z, various factors that attribute to affect this group, such as childhood, parental practices, attitudes, and beliefs that shape their worldview. Social media, smartphones, and heavy technology usage have consumed thousands of hours of this group’s time, causing many researchers to be concerned about potential technological addiction. This iPhone-connected lifestyle will translate to the workplace and has implications for both the Gen. Z employee and prospective employers, leaders and HR practitioners.
