Today, there’s a new breed of workers who are shaking organizations and encouraging companies to set up a positive work environment that attracts this generation. It’s about time businesses make way for the purpose-driven Generation Z workers.

Additionally, in this candidate-driven market, 69% of Gen Z job seekers wouldn’t take a position with a company that has a bad reputation. How you show up for your workforce and your community matters.

Mentorship empowers Gen Z and shapes the skills required for young employees’ career advancement and the business’s growth.
