What will happen in the near future? Are the ones born after 1994 really different in terms of consumption? How do they understand and approach the professional life? What are they really valuing in the workplace?

In this workshop we aim to discuss topics related to generation Z in order to better understand these individuals that still attend school but are already working. Living in a VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity) and under a new Industrial (or broader) Revolution how can we contribute to better understand this generation highlighting (or taking out) the best of it?

Papers including discussion on generational issues are welcome: Main topics:
  • Motivation and Generations: Differences and Similarities
  • Marketing for different generations
  • The impact of Artificial Intelligence on different generations
  • How will Industry 4.0 affect Generation Z?
  • How to manage cultural values and the identity of different generation in the workplace?
  • Are different generations differently oriented to productivity?
  • Strategies of attraction and retention of Generation Z
  • Entrepreneurial Intentions of Generation Z
  • Education strategies for Generation Z
  • Other Topics related to generational issues
