How it is changing everything...
It is predicted that by 2025, millennials and Gen Z will make up 75% of the global workforce, while the generation that entered employment in the 1980s will retire, bringing a gap between the way it was and the way it is now.
These new people entering the labour market will come with their own predetermining goals, based on their experience of life thus far. Back in the 1980s, technologies were a new thing. Computers were bulky and had their own language, and very little function but typing letters and printing. Mobile phones had not reached the masses yet. Only a very few had satellite phones that were so big and expensive. Smartphones were not even thought of yet.
Forget Wi-Fi and the internet at the touch of a button, social media platforms and other stuff we think we cannot live without anymore. Especially, the new generations. They also expect everything to happen ‘now’ and a growing body of evidence also shows that they have a much-reduced attention span.
This means that a huge proportion of the labour market whose patterns of consumption, relationships with technology, politics, culture, and ethics, and definitions of success in life and in the workplace are reshaping the way companies will attract and retain their personal.
What is already known:
The millennials have probably no idea what it was to not have everything at the touch of a button, let it be electricity or hot water, which is still just about 100 years old.
What are going to be the consequences of a constantly connected world, 5G (and similar future technology), and how it is affecting their life choice, work, and their overall health?
Let’s face it. If your attention span is just a few seconds, and you are used to have everything at the touch of a button, will you ever cook from scratch or will you just push the button on the microwave or order your next meal by using an app, or simply open a bag of snack. This means that diet habits are also changing and this will inevitably play on the health of the new generations. Ultra-processed foods are already a real problem, and large amount of evidence has already linked regularly eating takeaways and ready-made meals to metabolic disorders and obesity.
Have you noticed a change in eating habits in your lifestyle, the ever-increasing availability of ultra-processed foodstuff, while the cost of fresh produce keeps going up and up and up…? Has the way you eat changed in the last decade?
