The group born after 1995 lives in both the physical and the digital worlds. But who are they? And how will their unique characteristics impact the workplace? What are their qualities? What about their faults?

Most of the Gen Z personality traits (highly autonomous, self-taught, at ease with technological tools, etc.) make them very attractive to organizations, at least those that are ready to welcome and accommodate them. In an interview with CPA Magazine, Emilio B. Imbriglio, President and CEO of Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton, says, “Organizations have to learn to adapt because solutions come in many different ways. If we try to ‘break’ them, they’ll go elsewhere.” “They make me feel more alive, and I love their energy,” he says. “They’re very committed workers. They’re multitaskers who bring a fresh global view that embraces teamwork whatever the time, place or means. Their community is different and is defined by their passion, whether it is artificial intelligence, blockchain or anything else, and these communities span the globe.” To know more, read the article published in the October issue of CPA Magazine.
