HOW CAN I PREPARE MY WORKPLACE FOR THE ENTRY OF "GENERATION Z?"

"Believe it or not Generation Z (those born after 1998) will begin entering the workforce in just two short years. A little shocking considering the average workplace has just now reached a peak in Generation Y, or "millennial," workers. So what can you expect from Gen Z?

This generation values social connections, structure and a sense of predictability. They are strong multitaskers with an unparalleled reliance on social media. They are "virtually" smarter, fueld by their online gaming activity. Understanding the unique characteristics of the Gen Z worker is essential to adapting management practices and workspaces.

Our team of experienced professionals are helping businesses plan for the future. We can help you to identify areas for refuge to minimize distractions, enclave spaces that support online group work and create purposeful spaces that enhance productivity.
