What Gen Zs want: 20% prefer unemployment than work for non-inclusive firms
Six in 10 Gen Zs said they need a firm that backs equity, diversity, and inclusion.
The majority of Gen Zs (62%) are requiring strong equity, diversity, and inclusion (ED&I) from their employers, higher than Gen X (49%) and Millennials (56%), a Randstad report showed.
Gen Zs also has the highest percentage (24%) of respondents who answered that they would rather be unemployed than work for a company that does not align with their personal values.
With these findings, Randstad advised firms to invest in equity and inclusion to retain and attract talent.
“Whilst more than half of Hong Kong respondents expect D&I support from their employers, data show that Millennials and Gen Xers believe their employers do not support LGBTQIA+ employee protection and inclusion,” read the statement.
The findings highlight “the significance of creating a more equitable workplace and addressing the changing needs of future generations.”
