- Gen Z is starting to transform the workplace, according to two McKinsey executives at Davos.
- They told Insider how Gen Zers are more open to collaborate than millenials, but still have strong values.
Generation Z, the name given to people born between 1997 and 2012, are helping to fundamentally reshape the workplace in three key ways, two senior executives from consulting giant McKinsey told Insider.
Speaking to Insider at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Tracy Francis, McKinsey’s chief marketing officer, and Katy George, the company’s chief people officer, argued that among other things, Gen Z employees are more willing to compromise than workers from the preceding millennial generation, which sought to revolutionize the social climate.
Gen Z will work within systems to create change
“Perhaps the defining characteristic of Gen Z is that, instead of wanting to revolutionize, Gen Z is comfortable with the idea of change through structure,” Francis, who is a senior partner at McKinsey’s office in São Paulo, Brazil, told Insider.
