What values does Gen Z look for in an employer?

"A company culture that expands further than just getting the work done—what values does the company hold outside of a balance sheet (how are they building and promoting DE&I efforts, mitigating their carbon footprint or standing up for important social issues in an actually authentic way)? Also, a place where everyone feels like they have a seat at the table, regardless of seniority or their title."

"A company that emphasizes the importance of growth within the company, and outside of it"

"^Agree. It’s very easy to virtue signal these days, especially for large companies. At the same time, it’s usually pretty easy to figure out whether or not they’re truly investing their time and money in the efforts they talk about. Seeing positive growth in minority representation within the company, working with non-profit organizations, not only setting but actively meeting goals. These are things that will make me interested in an employer and would likely help keep me around for longer as well."

"I think a huge thing we look for is if the outward facing values of a company match up internally. For example, a company that touts sustainability practices cannot also have a workplace that devalues its employee with no benefits. Those discrepancies matter to us because at the end of the day, we have to be the ones working on the inside and not just working for the greater goals of the company"
