Episode in a Tweet: Working with Gen Z will allow you to keep the competitive advantage in shaping the future of “work” for the newest set of top talent in the twenty-first century.
Background: Generation Z has arrived in the working world and is here with their own workplace expectations. If employers intend to recruit top talent, they must be ready to meet the unique challenges this vibrant generation will bring to the workforce. And this is what Santor Nishizake and I talk about during this week’s episode of Refeclt Forward.
I met Santor through our publisher, Amplify Publishing, and we immediately hit it off. I appreciate his thoughtful research on what Gen Zers want from the workplace. During our conversation, Santor tells us how leaders can motivate and inspire this altruistic and socially motivated generation.
Santor believes that remarkable and innovative results will occur by leading each person based on their strengths and empowering your team to use them. As more Millennials move into leadership roles and Gen Z’ers enter the workplace, the emphasis on altruism and doing good in the world will continue to make it a better place than when we got here. I am confident you’ll learn much from this interview, and I hope you enjoy it!
