Generations and modern work: a comparison between Brazilian and German Millennials and Generation Zers
MetadataShow full item record
Members of generations Y (Millennials) and Z (Generation Zers) have distinct sets of values and preferences. Millennials need flexibility, whilst Generation Zers need stability; Millennials search for work with purpose, whilst Generation Zers take a pragmatical approach towards work opportunities. Nationality seems to play a secondary role in defining preferences, with slight differences being perceived between Brazilian and German Millennials. The gig economy, although displaying appealing features, still does not arise as a silver lining for members of these generational cohorts to experience the attributes they prefer in terms of their work lives, and traditional work relations are perceived as compatible with a series of important preferences these youngsters have.
