    THE SOLUTION: The primary factor contributing to the decline of Millennial loyalty is the Millennial belief that businesses are not doing enough to bridge the gap to ensure a new generation of business leaders is created.

As the remaining Millennials make their debut into the workforce, there will be even more tension integrating the up-and-coming, post-Millennial generation.

    THE SOLUTION: Meet Generation Z. Today’s youngest generation. The first generation who will spend their entire life in a world where earth’s accumulated knowledge can be accessed in an instant with a touch of a finger.

    Generation Z equipped with their own strengths, weaknesses, perspectives, needs, and wants have begun making their presence known. Generation Z may be the most socially savvy group marketers ever meet, the most diverse employers ever hire, and the most self-educated educators ever teach.

    Much like the Millennials, whose sheer size and early tech adoption was a catalyst for many consumer and workplace shifts, Generation Z will have similar disruptive tendencies growing up enabled and empowered by a tech-heavy and digital world.

    Change is inevitable but understanding and engaging of Generation Z must be intentional. Your organization’s future vitality depends on it.
