After Generations X and Y, Generation Z (years 1995-2011) is now gradually becoming part of the labor force. This has a variety of effects that employers and companies must be prepared for if they want to attract new skilled workers.
Compared to previous generations, Gen Z has completely different requirements for the working world. Gen Z wants flexibility; they want to work in Frankfurt today, in Bali tomorrow, and in Dubai the day after. As digital nomads, they want to explore the world, achieve self-actualization and discover the meaning of life. Topics such as work-life balance or environmental protection are also very important to Gen Z.
In such a world, a work model that requires mandatory on-site assignments is considered outdated. Accordingly, young professionals are looking for companies that fit their lifestyle and not the other way around. Companies that do not face up to these challenges now will fall by the wayside and will have problems surviving in the war for talent. This is because, particularly in industrial or manufacturing environments, a lot of information about plants, structural situations or conditions is only available directly on site. As is the case for the everyday life of Gen Z, digitalization plays a decisive role here as well.
With the photorealistic digital twins of Framence GmbH, all specialists always have access to the plants, regardless of where they are themselves. Thanks to the photorealistic representation of reality, the specialist no longer has to be on-site to take a look at the situation. They can take measurements within the twin, monitor real-time data, locate information, or even track changes over time. Even remote support can be realized with the twin, for example for repair or maintenance work.
In this way, Gen Z’s need for more freedom in their working lives is combined with the needs of companies – a new work culture is created from which both parties benefit equally.
