A new survey has revealed that Gen Z considers a good work-life balance one of the most important factors when it comes to their future career.
Research from the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), delved into the career aspirations and goals of Generation Z (born 1997 onwards) and found that work-life balance is of utmost importance to them.
The report also shows that while financial gain is a big driver, fulfilment, happiness and stability are high up on their list too.
Other findings reveal that while finance and accounting are seen as stable career paths, Gen Z on average finds tech more turbulent than millennials and so are less likely to want to pursue a career within the industry.
Gen Z are also more likely to want to see social action from their employers than millennials, whether that be regarding sustainability, climate change and/or inclusivity.
Nalisha Patel, GMAC Regional Director for Europe, said, “Gen Z are a highly socially conscious and aware generation that manages to balance ambitious future career plans alongside anxiety for the future of their community and the world.
“And they want employers and educators to respond to their expectations. From personalised courses and modules in higher education, to hybrid work in the professional world, Gen Z want their education and work to really reflect their interests as well function alongside their personal ambitions.
“Undertaking this research helps us not only understand this, but also compare with other generations too.”
