This will have a lasting effect on the way we work and communicate with each other. Above all, you will have to bid farewell to some of the habits you’ve cultivated over many years. But before we talk about the major changes, let’s take a look at some of the characteristics that define these two younger generations.
- Millennials: Those born between 1980 and the late nineties are called Millennials or Generation Y. According to Goldman Sachs, this is one of the largest generations ever, about three times the size of its predecessor Generation X.
- Gen Z: Those born between the late nineties and today are called Generation Z, or Gen Z for short. Experts consider Gen Z to be less homogenous than the previous generation. It is characterised by an individual lifestyle heavily shaped by technology.
While the majority of Gen Z is still at the very beginning of their professional careers, most Millennials are already an integral part of our working world. Many positive changes are already emerging, from which you and indeed all of us can reap the benefits.
