From creating viral TikTok dances to reviving Y2K fashion, Generation Z’s influence has helped shape recent popular culture. However, their influence doesn’t just stop there.
Since Gen Z’s debut in the workforce in 2020, members of this cohort have challenged conventional workplace norms by prioritizing things like mental health, work/life balance, pay equity, and flexible scheduling.
In light of these shifting priorities, HR experts believe this generation’s zeal for authentic self-expression, including in the workplace, is reshaping the HR leadership landscape. As this group continues to introduce these fresh perspectives championing transparency, collaboration, and inclusivity, HR leaders must adapt to meet those professional expectations, especially because Gen Z will comprise nearly a quarter of all employees by 2025.
