More than a third of the world’s population considers themselves Generation Z. These are people born between 1997 and 2012. They are technologically savvy, independent, and radically different from any previous generation. Gen Z is the children of the digital age, they are extra-progressive, creative, and ambitious. Zoomers are conquering the labor market. They will make up a significant share of the working population in a few years. The world’s leading companies realize that zoomers will soon be “running the show” and want to have promising, talented employees of the new generation. So, how to create a workspace for them?
To meet the requirements of the most progressive of adult generations, you need to keep track of and use the latest trends, innovative technologies, and features. While virtual reality in the office will cause a wow effect for a millennial, it is not know-how for Gen Z. For zoomers, for example, electronic whiteboards will be the norm, as they can instantly save and print anything written on them. It is worth implementing a smart office now. It is centralized control of all engineering systems with predefined lighting scenarios, background music, data collection and analysis, which increases work efficiency and allows for timely troubleshooting. Smart office technologies include voice recognition, access control systems, clever storage lockers, smart lighting, and air quality and temperature control in the workspace. The smart glass will be in demand. It is a method of glazing that changes its color and degree of transparency depending on the time of day or at the touch of a button. With a special projector, such glass can also be used as an interactive display. Multifactor security is an integral part of the work of a zoomer who is aware of the need for reliable protection of personal data. And these are just a few examples of the latest technologies being incorporated into a Generation Z-oriented workspace.
