Members of Generation Z o centenary Born between 1995 and 2010, they already make up 20% of the global workforce, although most of them are still studying. This makes them an essential part of today’s transformation of the world as a result of the pandemic.
In a few years, this generation will practically have to take over the world. However, will they be ready to face the challenges involved? Here are some properties of the Gen Z. This will allow you to take the lead in the near future.
1. Natives of the digital age
Centennials don’t know the world without screens, digital social networks or smartphones. So you are always connected, you are multitasking and multiscreen. A survey conducted by Dell Technologies of more than 12,000 young people from 17 countries found that 80% of them are striving for the latest technology, while 52% are confident they have the technological skills employers need.
2. Social and environmental awareness
This makes them conscientious consumers who, in addition to actively participating (and even founding) environmental organizations or for social purposes, choose sustainable brands and are much more open and inclusive than their previous generations.
3. Pragmatic and realistic
That said, the perfect mix between millennial dreamers and rational X Gen.
3. Adaptable and resilient
The “elders” of the centenarians are barely 25 years old but have already faced threats from terrorism, climate change, multiple economic recessions and even a pandemic that have allowed them to increase their resilience and adversely to adapt to the environment.
4. Creative and self-taught
For this reason, educators need to find new tools to “cultivate” knowledge in young people who are passionate about self-learning and who consider soft skills to be an integral part of their educational process.
5. They work on what they are passionate about.
This enables them to consciously choose which company they want to work or start their own business, adapt to different work contexts (such as the home office or the hybrid systems of the new normal) and live without prejudice to their previous generations.
