When you work with Gen Z youth, do you have these feelings and thoughts going through your head:

“They are always venting their anger on the social media, but they never say anything in person!”

“I can’t believe how fast they can do things; in only a few minutes they manage to do what took me hours. Awesome!”

“That’s how things are! Do as you are told and don’t ask why!”  

According to a ManpowerGroup report, globally nearly one third of the current workforce is from Generation Z or those born between the late 90’s to the early 2010’s. So, most likely, one of your co-workers is from Gen Z. Have you noticed, and is this a good thing or does this fill you with dread? The answer, like what consultants will say is ‘It depends!’

There are many commonly held ideas about Gen Z and their work ethic. The positive perception is that Gen Z is tech-savvy and will suggest quick and pragmatic solutions to streamline their work. Gen Z can be counted on to voice out creative ideas and take on challenging assignments. On the other hand, they are regarded as less motivated, isolated from their teams, and disengaged from their jobs. They are prone to anxiety caused by stressful environments and insensitive to the social politics in the office. When working with your Gen Z colleagues, are these the attitudes you have encountered? Are these myths widely shared and are they even true?

This all feels like the parable of the blind men and the elephant when each person perceives a different part of an elephant. To be able to see the whole picture, Association of KM Practitioners (KMP) is providing a platform where you can openly communicate with Gen Zs. The event is organized by KMP, a community formed by MSc in Knowledge Management graduates to support promotion of KM to the general public in Hong Kong. Knowledge Management and Innovation Research Centre (KMIRC) is the co-organizer of this event.

To liven up to the spirit of ‘Let’s talk on air’, we will open the platform to the participants after the panel discussion. Please join us and seize the opportunity to understand how Gen Zs think and act.
