The first “digital natives” were the millennial generation, one of the largest demographics that enjoy their role in today’s multigenerational workforce. They were raised during the growing tech era, which included social media, smartphones, and broadband internet. Generation Z followed, having grown up in a digital age and experiencing a time when life’s physical and digital dimensions were becoming increasingly entwined. 

Both generations sincerely believe that anything is possible and look beyond the limitations of time and space. These generations are redefining the idea of work as a whole. Their ideal digital workspaces satisfy their desire for consumer technology simplicity, provide them with the freedom and mobility they value in their personal lives, and satisfy their need for office technology. 

Why businesses should follow Gen Z 

Frequently, businesses and organizations are too preoccupied with “running the business” to take the time to dream and create, especially when they have increased in size and commercial effect. In the past, minimizing risks and being practical might have been the best ways to guarantee a healthy bottom line, but today’s dynamic digital landscape necessitates greater mental agility. 

Aspiring to higher ideals, believing that anything is possible, believing they can control their own fate, being motivated by something other than money, and being naturally innovative when left to their own devices, millennials and Gen Z are the generations of dreamers. 

Businesses should make use of some of that “dreamy” character to spark innovative thinking and challenge antiquated operational practices. 

Inspired by a passion for cutting-edge and empowering spaces 

What distinguishes these generations from the past workforces, then? Do they mark a break from the past? Yes and no, I believe. Both Millennials and Gen Z are aspirational generations that like decentralized workspaces and are less receptive to the cubicle culture. 

A completely digitalized workspace is necessary for this aspiring workforce to feel like their employer is giving them the greatest tools for success. They demand no less from their workplace software and networks because they are accustomed to the user-friendly and intuitive UI they come across on their smartphones.

The fact that they were raised in the digital age does not imply that they do not appreciate adding a human touch. In fact, they appear to understand how to do it naturally. Additionally, there are a few crucial technologies that must be incorporated into the plan. 

For instance, Gen Z considers agile technology to be essential, but the two elements that have the greatest positive impact on them are “supportive leadership” and “good connections at work.” Mobility and face-to-face communication options are strongly preferred by Generation Z (72%). In fact, 56% of Millennials and Gen Z members said they rely on their coworkers to produce their best work. 

Through a culture of innovation and creativity, workplaces that support effective on-the-go and flexible channels of communication not only benefit themselves but are also more likely to draw the top candidates from a new generation of workers. For Millennials and Gen Z, well-integrated, multi-channel, and user-friendly digital tools are crucial  


Organizations typically anticipate that their staff will adopt their culture and values. This strategy continues to be one we value. It is nevertheless a good strategy to adopt for a corporation to reshape itself in accordance with employee desires. 

According to our perspective, Millennials and Gen Z are undeniably transforming and reinventing society in terms of leaving their stamp. The way that digital tools are being introduced into workplaces and organizations is being reimagined, which is one of the most obvious ways that this is happening.
