After research revealed that those under the age of 22 are expecting different things from the workplace, Roar Ambition has spoken on why it’s good for every industry to shake things up and adapt to new ideas.
The study conducted by Bridgeworks studied 3,103 participants consisting of individuals from Generation Z and Millennials. The findings of the study revealed new insights into the work styles and ideals of the two generations. The study discovered that leadership could anticipate the arrival of generation edge and how they will shape the future workforce.
The oldest cohort of generation edge have graduated from University and are now involved in their first full-time jobs. From the role of gender and the understanding of a good work life balance, generation edge typically tend to enter the workforce with hesitations and expectations that differ entirely from previous generations.
The findings of the report revealed that 74 percent of “generation edgers” said they will struggle with in person communication while at work. 50 percent of females believed their gender identity will be an obstacle in their career path, whereas only 16 percent of generation edge males thought the same, generation edgers also wanted to see a rise in the number of females in leadership positions within the workplace.
Almost a third of all generation edgers said they are planning to stay at one company for 11 or more years. They defined success in their professional lives as creating an impact on society and taking a role within a company that stands up for social issues they care about and make a difference in the working world. Furthermore, when asked about their confidence in being a leader within five years at a company, 73 percent of males and 53 percent of females agreed this would be true
