New research from PromoLeaf aims to help businesses better understand workplace preferences amongst Gen Z, the newest generation. Check out some of the key findings: ● Almost one in four Gen Zers believe that free healthcare increases job retention. ● The median time Gen Z wants to spend in one job is 3.72 years. However, just over 25% of Gen Z would stay in a job only 1-2 years before looking for another one. ● Just under 15% of respondents would want to work in an office full time, and under 11% would like to work remotely full time. While another 15% had no preference, the remainder of respondents would prefer some kind of hybrid mix of time in the office and time spent working remotely. ● Nearly 50% of respondents aged 18-23 years said they would take less pay for a more desirable working environment. ● Transparency also matters to Gen Z when it comes to both perks and salary. Just over 43% believe companies should be clear about which perks they offer employees, and 30% would not even pursue a job if the perks offered were not clear ahead of time.
