Image of a member of Generation Z

Knoll has come out with a very interesting look at kids 16 and under, Generation Z. They will start entering the workplace by the end of the decade and have a dramatic impact on it. In the article Gen Z are compared to Gen Y as well as their parents in Gen X. Their workplace needs will require different planning models and spaces.

While Generation X is comfortable with traditional workplaces and accept new workplace ideas with practical applications; and Generation Y is at ease with open, unstructured workplaces; Generation Z will need layouts with clear circulation, visual access and spaces whose intent are obvious.

The article summarizes: “They value structure and predictability and “get” the online world, yet are easily distracted, and will be challenged navigating face-to-face work relationships.”

It projects these modificatons to today’s workplace:

“Knoll proposes three key workspace opportunities to support Generation Z’s needs:

  • A sense of structure through clear layout and making obvious the purpose of spaces
  • “Enclave” spaces that support blended face-to-face/online meetings
  • “Refuge” spaces that offer space for real-time coaching, and a place that minimizes distractions and encourages focus work when needed”

Feel free to check out the article for all the details. You can download the entire report in pdf form here –  What-Comes-After-Y.

The benefit to you: knowing your employees lets you understand their unique workplace needs and plan accordingly. And that lets you have the most productive workplace possible.

Be sure to review more valuable workplace research we provide access to and take a look at the generations proceeding Gen Z.
