Leaders Guide to Communication with Generation Z Members

by | May 29, 2018 | Formation, Social

Move over, millennials! HR experts have discussed Gen Y at length in the past decade. All the articles lamenting over millennial malaise in the workplace and championing their technological prowess. Now, there’s a new kid in town and they’re catching everyone’s attention: Generation Z.

From a nice clear article on Generation Z at work, here’s another challenge to do a “vincentian rewrite” of to help us welcome new members.

Generation Z
The “RisePeople” blog nails down some important information for us.

Generation Z (a.k.a. those born in the mid-1990s and later), is now entering the workforce. They’ve been labeled as an exaggerated archetype of millennials: even more tech-savvy and screen-obsessed, and with even higher expectations.

This means they’re entering ministry and formation programs, too. Are we ready?

Don’t confuse Generation Z folks with millennials. The research shows that their communication preferences at work are very different. Methinks that means reaching out to them and welcoming them in has to have a different approach, too.

Rise says they prefer

  • in-person meetings,
  • honest communication and feedback,
  • and they don’t like hierarchical relations and styles!

Uh oh! Read the article here and think about what this research means to your recruitment or vocation program!
