2024 Gen Z and Millennial Survey (Global and Greek data)

Living and working with purpose in a transforming world

The 13th edition of Deloitte’s Gen Z and Millennial Survey connected with nearly 23,000 respondents across 44 countries - including Greece - to track their experiences and expectations at work and in the world more broadly.

  • Nearly all Gen Zs and Millennials in Greece seek purpose-driven work and are not afraid to turn down jobs that don’t align with their values. This trend has been steadily increasing in recent years.
  • For Greece, Gen Zs by 40% and millennials by 48% rank the cost of living at the top of their concerns.
  • Greek Gen Zs and Millennials experience higher levels of stress compared to the global average. Consequently, they seek workplaces that support better mental health, offer flexibility and provide opportunities for learning and career development.
  • In Greece, Gen Z is slightly more critical when evaluating the alignment of their values with those of their employers. Only 64% of Gen Zs report being somewhat or very satisfied, which is ten percentage points lower than millennials and seven points below the global average for Gen Z.
  • Protecting the environment is the social challenge where Gen Zs and millennials believe businesses have the greatest opportunity and influence to make a difference. Approximately six in ten Gen Zs (62% globally and 64% in Greece) and millennials (59% globally and 55% in Greece) report feeling stressed or worried about climate change in the past month.
  • GenAI is creating uncertainty and influencing career decisions, but positive perceptions of GenAI largely increase with frequent use. In Greece, 45% of Gen Z and 31% of millennials believe that GenAI will somewhat or significantly improve their work in the next 12 months.
  • Nearly three in ten Gen Zs and millennial employees are concerned that their supervisor would discriminate against them if they reported anxiety or other mental health issues. Additionally, about three in ten do not believe that senior managers prioritize mental health in the workplace. These concerns are even higher in Greece, with 37% of Gen Zs (compared to 26% globally) and 53% of millennials (compared to 32% globally) sharing these worries.
