Millennials vs. Gen Z in the Workforce

Posted: May 26  |  By: Parker + Lynch

It’s all about Millennials (also known as Gen Y). Well, it is to an extent, but there’s a new generation demanding our attention—Generation Z. Who is “Gen Z?” The oldest members were born in the mid to late 1990s, whereas Millennials were born from the early 1980s to the mid to late 1990s. Yes, many “Gen Zers” are still children, but older members are young adults pursuing their careers through higher education, or perhaps, already entering the workforce. Before they seize a large chunk of the nation’s talent pool, let’s get to know them by comparing them to more experienced Millennials (currently the largest generation in the workforce). This will help you better understand members of Gen Z and prepare for their entrance into your company.
