Short attention spans. Technology driven. Philanthropic. These are three traits that differentiate Generation Z – those who were born in the mid-to-late ‘90s – from Millennials, says Matt Stewart, co-founder of College Works Painting.
Stewart, who works closely with those in Generation Z, indicates there are certain characteristics those who are born in that time period develop, and they are shaping today’s workforce behavior. Because of this change in attitudes and beliefs, situations involving younger workers must be handled on a individual basis.
“If you try to treat those in Generation Z like you treated Millennials, it will backfire on you,” he says. “This generation is unique, and now they are starting to enter the workforce.”
