  • How to prepare for the arrival of Generation Z in the workplace

    Houston Business Journal - 07/07/2016

    While spring college graduation ceremonies are nothing new, 2016 is unique. This year, members of America’s next generation – otherwise known as Generation Z – donned their caps and gowns for the first time.

    According to a 2014 study by Northeastern University, more than two out of every five members of Generation Z, or 42 percent, want to start their own business and expect to work for themselves. Members of Gen Z may also be lower maintenance in their expectations when compared to their predecessors. Instead of focusing on lofty goals, they seem to be pragmatic and down to earth. In fact, they overwhelmingly believe practical skills like financial literacy and entrepreneurship are very important to obtain in college. Their focus on practicality may be a key asset to the companies that hire them.
