A peek into the mind of tomorrow’s Gen Z

An insightful session on defining attributes of Gen Z at People Matters TechHr2017 conference

Raghav Bahl , founder, Quintillion Media stressed the importance of understanding attributes of Gen Z who form an important workforce of the Industry. He explains profoundly how social media impacts and influences Gen Z in a big way. He said, “Bulk of the workforce in India is under 45 years of age and they have grown under two major influences - social media and digital connectivity. The concept of working in silos is completely smashed today and this change is owed to one single device i.e. mobile connectivity. Today’s Gen Z is no longer passive recipient of commands, initiatives or framework. They actively partake and highly engage themselves. They demand that their voice be heard and tools are available at their command to fulfill their demand. The social media amplifies whatever they want to convey. In the current times, all of us are surrounded by empowering information, which is not just product of one mind but collective power. Today if any subject is buzzing or trending, we instantly get opinions of several eminent experts. Gen Z are used to getting their voice heard. They are habitual of living in increasing free state. So, it is very crucial for organizations and HR to understand Gen Z of the present world and accordingly craft their HR systems around them.”


 GenZ : opinion matters 

Raghav Bahl adds, “Organizations should be transparent about their objective with their employees (especially Gen Z). If a company introduces any policy – they need to discuss in length with the young workforce as their opinion matters. Just sticking a notice on the board is not a method for conveying a new change or a policy – they must be open for interactions or discussions and need not be surprised when they experience pushback from them. With the existence of older generations at the top management of the company, there is semantic adherence to the terms like flexibility, transparency, engagement etc. There is no real buying. Older organizations are unable to come to grips with very fluid , organic HR system .”
