MANATEE COUNTY, FL (WWSB) - If your child was born between 1995 and 2010, they’re technically part of Generation Z. That means the oldest members are graduating from colege and working alongside Millennials, Generation X, and Baby Boomers.
“When you’re working with many different generations in a workplace, we’re working very collaboratively, we’re a team,” said Mireya Eavey, Chief Workforce Officer with CareerEdge.
According to Eavey, having employees from different generations is an advantage for any office. She believes Generation Z is financially savvy in the workplace, and in their personal lives, since they grew up during the Great Recession.
On the contrary, some believe young workers lack soft skills.
“They’re going to adapt that they’re going to be working with generations like mine that I still want to pick up the phone and have a conversation with someone,” explained Eavey.
Generation Z may bring some competition. Researchers with the group Accounting Principals say they’re 55% more likely to start a business than millennials.
