EY surveyed 1,400 Gen Z individuals at its 22nd annual International Intern Leadership Conference this summer to gauge their sentiment about the future of work as they enter the workforce.

 

The survey found that Generation Z is “eager for innovation and accepts that failure will likely be a part of the process.” Here are some of the results:

 

70%

believe it’s more important to be seen as having a curious and open mind-set than a specific skill or expertise.

 

77%

would prefer to have a Millennial manager rather than a Gen X-er or Baby Boomer.

 

65%

of Gen Z-ers feel confident they will be better off than their parents, both financially and in happiness at work.

 

63%

feel it’s important to work with people with diverse education and skill levels.
