Move Over Millenials; Here Comes Gen Z

Image result for gen z

Gen Z was born around the mid-1990s.

Behavioral characteristics:

More cautious (e.g., less underage drinking, higher seat-belt use) and perhaps slightly more introverted than Gen Xers or Millennials

■ Less cynical, more accepting — culturally and otherwise — than their Gen X parents

■ 1st generation to be born with ubiquitous digital technology, so they deal in and expect shorter timeframes of action and reaction


Digital profile:

■ More private on social media (preferring Snapchat to Facebook)

■ Realistically accept their lack of cyberspace privacy and anonymity, so they are comparatively preoccupied with the appearance of their online profiles; want to look good, clean, on background checks.


Professional approach:

Not as tied to their college majors for their career tracks

■ Seek both job flexibility in assignments and job-growth potential

■ Less concerned with perks, dress codes, etc., than Millennials

■ Preoccupied with their ability to pay off student loans

■ More unisex/gender-neutral in their career paths

They are the largest and most ethnically diverse generation in the U.S. And they have grown up with access to seemingly whatever they want, whether it be information, music, entertainment or, let’s be honest, ways to block advertising.  Nielsen reported last year, that 97 percent of Gen Zers had smartphones and 78 percent had tablets, ahead of the 95 percent of millennials and Gen Xers with smartphones—and the 70 percent of both groups with tablets.



President Trump proposes Major Reform In Civil Service Workforce

President Trump proposed major reforms to the civil service workforce in his fiscal 2019 budget request, focusing on streamlining the hiring and firing process, transitioning current employees to new federal jobs and minimizing the influence of labor groups.

The ” blueprint “. The budget repeatedly noted the president’s priority to trim agency rolls across government, but also suggested agencies find new positions for workers whose jobs have or will become obsolete. The administration will invest in “reskilling the workforce to meet current needs,” the president said in the document.

Current employees can shift from legacy positions into emerging fields such as data analysis, cybersecurity and other IT disciplines.



375 Million May Be Hunting For Employment When Automation Kicks In


By 2030 up to 30% of the hours worked globally could be automated. According to a new report by the McKinsey Global Institute  researchers estimate that between 400 million and 800 million people could find themselves displaced by automation and in need of new jobs, depending on how quickly new technologies are adopted. Of this group, as many as 375 million people—about 14% of the global workforce—may need to completely switch occupational categories and learn a new set of skills to find work.

Number of workers needing to find new jobs due to automation

AI technologies like speech analytics, deep-learning platforms and natural language generation have exploded onto the scene in the past 12 months. Soon firms will be able to automate and scale in a more efficient way because software will ultimately be able to learn and adapt rather than require programming.

Automation will transform the workforce as technology advances result in humans increasingly working side by side with software robots These robots don’t herald a gloomy future for jobs. As we showed in our report. Working Side By Side With Robots, automation will replace some jobs and create others, with a net loss of 9.8 million US jobs by 2027 — while transforming at least 25 percent of the remaining jobs.

Survey Reveals That Your Boss Really Doesn’t Approve of Facebook Friends With Co Workers



The surprising result of a survey of 1,006 employees and 307 senior managers conducted by staffing company OfficeTeam. Survey respondents were asked how appropriate it was to connect with co-workers on various social media platforms. It turns out that bosses and their employees have very different answers to this question.

When it comes to Facebook, 77 percent of employees thought it was either “very appropriate” or “somewhat appropriate” to be Facebook friends with your work colleagues, but only 49 percent of senior managers agreed. That disagreement carries over to other social media platforms. Sixty-one percent of employees thought it was fine to follow a co-worker on Twitter, but only 34 percent of bosses agreed. With Instagram, 56 percent of employees, but only 30 percent of bosses thought following a co-worker was appropriate. Interestingly, the one social platform bosses and employees seem to almost agree about is Snapchat, with 34 percent of employees thinking it was fine to connect with colleagues, and 26 percent of bosses thinking so too.

LinkedIn was not included in the OfficeTeam survey, but because it’s a professional networking tool, few bosses will object to you connecting with coworkers there.
