Survey of Generation Z

by on June 16, 2016

Back in 2013 we first commented that Generation z had arrived on the scene.  Now Robert Half have issued a survey report along with the obligatory infographic and even a ‘fun ‘quiz’ to see what generation you ‘really’ are at heart.

I know your curious so here’s the result from my ‘fun quiz’

“YOU’RE IN GENERATION Y AT HEART Born between 1978 and 1989, Gen Yers grew up during the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s. They are generally not afraid of change and will work for several companies over their career spans. Gen Yers tune in to upbeat and diverse music, and might have had their first crushes on Monica Geller or Chandler Bing.”

On another research project I took a quiz to find out what sort of Barbie I was – they have the same sort of robustness and both rather trivialise understandings of diversity (from recollection I was mermaid barbie).  I love the fact that underneath Robert Half post the disclaimer: “*Please note, the quiz is for entertainment purposes only.”

But back to the serious research about Gen Z.  Its a little difficult from the summary information to tell how the research was conducted other than a survey of 800.  ‘College’ is mentioned a lot so I am guessing they are mainly students.  That said I thought there were some interesting highlights from the infographic regarding technology use and retirement (Please see above for the link to the full details via Robert Half, infographic is copyright Robert Half)
