Gen Z comes flexible and prepared
The vast majority of new graduates in the United Kingdom have considered job availability before selecting their area of study. Eighty-three percent are willing to relocate for a job. And 57 percent consider it acceptable to work on weekends or evenings.
Large employers are well positioned
New graduates return to more traditional workplace values: a clear career path and stability, training and mentoring, and competitive compensation. Large employers are best positioned to provide the employee experience new grads desire.
Digital natives crave the human element
Three-quarters of new graduates feel prepared for today’s digital workforce, and 68 percent welcome artificial intelligence and other advanced technologies. At the same time, new graduates show a preference for in-person meetings. They rank their relationship with their team lead as a top concern. And they rate communication, problem-solving and management savvy as the top skills to develop.
