WIZDOMS FOR WORKING WITH GEN Z
- Adaptation is a two-way street: While it is important for businesses to adapt to the needs of the new generation, it is important for Gen Z to realize that they may need to also adapt to the ways of the workforce.
- Each generation is different: One generation is not better than the other, they are simply different. The way Gen Z gets things done is going to be different from Gen X, but they can both be successful.
- Embrace Gen Z’s desire to win: Gen Z’s competitive nature is something that should be treasured in the workforce. Competition can be healthy and it is not a trait that is easy to come by.
- Using behavioral analytics in the workplace: Analytics help us understand the way people think, how they take action, and what their strengths are. Leveraging this information helps to build strong and successful teams across generations.
