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:



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



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



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



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