What matters to young professionals at work — and what turns them off

The workplace is on the brink of a new shakeup. Generation Z — the most diverse and educated age group in the U.S. — is entering the workforce. Born digital into a connected world while spending half its waking hours on screen, Gen Z is shaped by digital culture and social feeds. Witnessing social justice movements, shunned gender issues, and exploitation of natural resources from early on, they have developed a unique sensibility and a strong stance for equity and ethical business practices.

Bringing along their forward-looking aspirations in the workplace, young Gen Z professionals are about to shake up business-as-usual. But is the workplace ready for them? Not quite, according to the data from a TalentLMS and BambooHR new research.

More than 1 in 3 working Gen Zers find it difficult to cope with pressure and stress at work. With 91% experiencing at least one symptom of stress, they need better support from their employers.
