07 Jun Do Gen Z & Millennial Generations Actually Prefer To Be Back In The Office?
Had an interesting conversation yesterday with a #civilengineer in my network.
We were discussing the whole #futureofwork / #remotework / #hybridwork environment, and I found what he said pretty interesting.
He felt that the younger generation of #civilengineers, let’s say 30 and under, actually PREFER to be back in the office working on a full-time basis.
I never really thought about it this way, but he felt like this 30-and-under generation of #civilengineering professionals who grew up in front of the screen actually need the break of being in an office to give them a break from the screen.
Think about it.
It makes sense.
Gaming. Netflix. Instagram. TikTok. Snap Chat. YouTube.
The screen time is NON STOP.
Dare I call it an addiction?
So being in the office, surrounded by people, having social interactions, face-to-face meetings, site visits, city council and planning commission meetings…they all provide a reprieve.
Would you AGREE or DISAGREE with this based upon how YOU feel as a 30-and-under engineer, or what you are seeing from your 30-and-under staff?
I look forward to engaging with you on this topic in the comment section below!
