Is Your Workplace Attractive To Generation Z?
Barbara Whye, chief diversity & inclusion officer and VP of social impact and human resources, Intel discusses the results of a study undertaken by Intel investigating how to attract Generation Z into your workforce through diversity and inclusion if companies want to stay ahead of the curve.
What Gen Z expects from the workplace
From social equity to climate change, this is a generation that is determined to make a difference. When it comes to work, Intel’s research found that a majority of Gen Zs in the UK would be hesitant to take a job from a company that does not have diverse representation in senior leadership roles. Moreover, in choosing between competing job offers, a company’s stance on diversity and inclusivity is almost as important as the pay offered.
Many of the respondents agreed that more inclusive organisations have a better base of experiences, a stronger sense of belonging, and a greater competitive advantage. It is increasingly important for employees to work somewhere that welcomes people of different backgrounds, provides equal opportunities for underrepresented minorities and people with disabilities, and is LGBTQ+ friendly.
