Each generation is different and requires different support in the workplace. Currently, Gen Z is becoming a major force in the workplace, resulting in a shift in hiring and employee retention practices. This is especially important, as Gen Z will compose 30% of the workforce by 2030.
Unfortunately, companies are facing large challenges when it comes to Gen Z recruitment and retention. Many hiring managers find Gen Z hard to work with and do not share the same expectations as Gen Z employees.
52% of early-career employees say their turnover could have been prevented, so how can companies do this? There are several key actions companies can take: establish clear expectations, promote transparency and respect, foster connections, and streamline communication.
These steps are important to Gen Z; in fact, 98% of Gen Z workers report that clear expectations of a role are important to them. Implementing these steps can significantly boost Gen Z employee retention, therefore setting businesses up for success in a changing workplace.
