Attracting & Retaining Gen Z Talent


This weeks insight is attracting and retaining Gen Z professionals.

This year we will see Gen Z (born between 1997-2012) overtake the number of Baby Boomers in the workplace. Tech-savvy Gen Z are flagged 🚩 as being the most disruptive generation yet and will make the biggest changes to the workplace with their different approaches to ways of working and work/life priorities.

Organisations will need to change and adapt their employee value proposition and recruitment processes to align with what is important to Gen Z, including their desire for expedited career development, instant gratification from tasks / projects and preference for remote/hybrid working.

🚀 23% of the workforce will be Gen Z in 2024

🚀 9 out of 10 Gen Z see remote/hybrid working as the biggest lever when choosing a role

🚀 57% of Gen Z would leave a role due to lack of professional development opportunities
