The majority of Generation Z and millennials are dissatisfied at work, according to a recent study by daVinci Payments. The results reveal that 78% of Gen Z employees plan to leave their job within the next two years, while 43% of Millennials surveyed said they plan to leave their job within the next two years. The results come from an online survey of 632 people from 18 to 38 years old.
Recognizing them — no matter how little — helps the two generations to achieve personal fulfillment, the researchers said. When recognized, not only do they do their job, but they also become positive promoters — much more than other generations. Seventy-nine percent of respondents said an increase in recognition rewards would make them more loyal to their employers. When not recognized, "they will proactively work against you," the study said.
