The first question: What can leaders and managers do to motivate their employees?

The first thing is to realize that all people are different. One person’s career goals and values can be completely different than the person sitting next to them. You should ask each employee what they want and gain an understanding of their personal motivators. This way, you will be on track when you want to inspire individuals to perform at peak levels.

Understanding and Supporting Gen Z in the Workplace

Understanding and Supporting Gen Z in the Workplace

Gen Z is the latest generation to enter the workplace. While Millennials still remain the majority of today’s workforce, Gen Z is catching up. Those born between the mid-1990s to mid-2000s qualify as Gen Z and account for 61 million people in the United States. The Gen Z population are digital natives and they can’t imagine a time when the internet didn’t exist. Technology has always been an integral part of their daily lives and, like Millennials, social media is a big part of it. Compared to the previous generation of Millennials, who are often criticized for job hopping, Gen Z workers, who grew up during the 2008 recession, seem to be gravitating toward jobs that are more stable and they appear to prioritize financial security more. With this new workforce generation it’s important to offer guidance and encouragement to help them develop and thrive professionally.
