If you have employees who are younger millennials and members of Generation Z, you may have to work extra hard to keep them.
A study from Gallup, reported by Insider, shows that their attitudes about their jobs have shifted from enthusiasm to indifference. During the pandemic (from 2019 to 2022), Gallup shows the share of employees under age 35 who say they’re “engaged” with their work fell from 37% to 33%—the lowest level since 2011.
Even worse, the percentage who say they’re “actively disengaged” increased from 12% to 17%. Apparently, according to Gallup, these young workers are now as unhappy with their jobs as everyone else.
