A Gen X view on Gen Z issues

By Mark Walker

Gen Z issues (IMHO as a Gen X) are incredibly overhyped. Whilst Gen Y and Gen Z may not sit in a job just because it offers them security, as many Gen X may have done, the same rules surely apply that to keep them engaged, businesses just need to LISTEN to them and understand their individual wants and needs. A simple solution which on the whole is still overlooked by many employers.

If you have hungry and ambitious Gen X, Y and Z employees they will want to know how they are going to progress through the business and more importantly, know and understand the ‘purpose’ for both them as an individual and for the business. 

Without a ‘purpose’, it doesn't matter whether you're a Gen X, Y or Z, those that want to get on, will find another business that offers them ‘purpose’.

Do you know your purpose? What’s your business purpose?

Gen Z are the hardest talent to retain as employees, as under 24-year-olds are almost nine tenths more likely than average to leave a job after two years.
