Approximately every 20 years, a new generation joins the workforce and turns the world of work upside down. This, in turn, ignites a yearslong cycle of research and literature aimed at understanding how to manage this “complex” and “drastically different” group of individuals. Then, 20 years later, the cycle starts again. Wash, rinse, repeat. But why?

It is easy to assume that baby boomers, Gen X, millennials, and Gen Z all differ significantly from each other as each generation entered the workforce under much different conditions. However, when it comes to personality, age often plays a powerful role in how individuals behave at work. Now that Gen Z is firmly established within the global workforce, does the same pattern hold true?

In the next edition of The Science of Personality Live, hosts Ryne Sherman, PhD, and Blake Loepp are joined by Jean Twenge, PhD, professor of psychology at San Diego State University and world-renowned expert on generational differences, to discuss Gen Z and how to manage these “new” kids on the block.
