Forrer is excited to welcome Rich Benoit of Steelcase to explore how Gen-Z, entering the workforce for the first time this year, will change the workplace.

With Generation Z representing over 28% of the global population, their influence on where and how we work will be significant. Generation Z thinks differently than previous generations—and they work differently too. They expect constant feedback, yet want their voices heard and valued. They are experiential learners with a strong entrepreneurial spirit. Plus, they are constantly connected to the world around them through technology.

Steelcase research shows what organizations need to consider when integrating Generation Z into the workplace and the changes that may occur in organizational culture, work processes and technology. Rich will explore the behaviors, motivations, expectations and values of Generation Z, and suggests ways organizations and businesses can adapt to their needs and interests to ensure success for all.
