Description

Generation Z is more inclined to use mediated communication, which leads to them communicating differently from Millennia ls and Generation Y, the two generations that currently make up the majority of the job market; this poses the threat of negatively influencing employers' perceptions of Gen Z's workplace capabilities. This study explores the difference in communication style preferences between Generation Z and the X and Y Generations and its impacts by interviewing 12 Gen X and Y internship supervisors.
