Last year, the Emerging Workforce® Study shined the spotlight on the workforce from a generational perspective, reporting on the characteristics and motivations of five different generations in the workplace. While Gen Y or Millennials—those born after 1980—have surpassed Baby Boomers and now represent a majority in the workforce, right behind them is a new generational cohort that will make its own unique impact on the world of work—Gen Z. As recruiting and retaining Gen Y and Gen Z workers is one of the leading challenges for employers, the study took a closer look at these youngest and increasingly influential members of the workforce.
