Rachel Snyder, the newest and youngest member of the 8000+ member Manufacturing Media Consortium, recently authored a feature in Manufacturing Tomorrow magazine. Snyder discussed why manufacturers must enroll and engage Gen Zers (born in the 1990s to 2010s). Read the full article here.
According to Snyder, “Essentially, Gen Zers have turned into the protectors of the disenfranchised, acting like watchdogs that keep older generations in check. Inclusivity, equality, and diversity are the three pillars that Gen Zers look for in every capacity, whether shopping, working, or even who to follow on Instagram. If companies want to attract Gen Z workers, they must put forth clear messaging about how much they value a friendly and tolerant workplace.”
“Gen Zers are the answer to solving the industrial workforce shortage AND the customers eagerly sought by manufacturers. Since there is much more awareness about gender fluidity, sexual orientation, and racial identity, manufacturing companies must promote safety, non-bullying, inclusivity to account for Gen Zer values,” shared Snyder.
Manufacturing Tomorrow is an online trade magazine featuring products, companies, news, articles, and events for the advanced manufacturing, factory automation, and 3D printing industries.
