Now in its 11th year, the 2022 survey finds Gen Zs and millennials, both in New Zealand and around the world, are striving for balance and advocating change. As these generations reassess what matters to them most they are grappling with the current state of the world and are fighting to reconcile their desire for change with the demands and constraints of everyday life.
Financial anxiety and burn out are a struggle for many, and these generations are pushing for more purposeful – and flexible – work while at the same time pressing their employers to tackle societal matters which they can get directly involved in. They’ve also inspired organisations to address workplace mental health, increase learning and development opportunities, provide higher compensation. These are all strategies which will help employers attract and retain talent in the current environment.
