WHAT IS IT?
As corporate leaders seek to hire top talent, it is vital that those looking to bring in Gen Z do not forget that this is a generation like none before it — they should be treated as such.

The future workforce depends on Gen Z. It is the one-click, all-digital generation, growing up in a borderless world. And, by 2025, 27% of the workforce in OECD countries will be Gen Z.
