Abstract [en]

Problem 

Following the expanded competition when it comes to attraction and retention of skilled workers, hence white-collar workers, organizations need to better adapt to the rapid changes in the labor market. Due to the lack of knowledge about the recent Generation Z and their perceptions and values regarding work, the Person-Organization (P-O) fit has been applied in order to gain a deeper knowledge of what attracts and retains individuals of Generation Z, in order for companies to better meet their needs.

 

Purpose

Due to the lack of research done on Generation Z, the purpose of this study is to gain a greater understanding of the values and perceptions of Generation Z and how they operate in the white-collar business sector. Moreover, this creates a greater insight for organizations in order to help them better target the right talent pool and gain a greater understanding of Generation Z that has come to change the labor market.

 

Method

In order to gain a greater knowledge and insight about Generation Z, a qualitative study has been performed to better understand the perception of this Generation. In-depth interviews have been conducted with Generation Z that have or are currently operating in the white-collar business sector in order to meet the purpose of this study. Semi-structured interviews were conducted in order to allow for a fruitful discussion of their values and perceptions and the likely impacts they consider when joining an organization.

 

Conclusion

Generation Z indicated that certain aspects are to consider in the decision-making process of applying or taking a job. Indeed, their own values, beliefs and work-personal life matter to a great extent and is to be matched with the company. This study comes to the result of six determined factors influencing this decision-making process: small enterprises, flexibility trust and freedom, work/private life environmental factors, organizations values/ethics, do what they love, digital natives.
