Inside the Minds of Millenials and Gen Zs

Disruption can be a positive thing. It is a part of life after all. However, for those who began coming of age during the global economic recession a decade ago, disruption took a toll on them — it forever changed their view of the world where they live in.

The latest Deloitte Global Millennial Survey shines a light on the human toll taken by years of societal discord, technological transformation and economic insecurity.

Deloitte Global has been looking inside the minds of millennials for the past eight years in order to better understand what makes them tick. They’ve also begun to Generation Z members to examine how different are the youngest employees and consumers from their predecessors.

We look for trends, sure, but are equally interested in discovering morsels of data that Deloitte clients might find surprising. There were plenty of those morsels in this year’s survey results. Even some of the trends were unexpected.
For instance, the percentage of millennials who believe the economic situations in their countries will improve during the coming year was 45 percent each of the past two surveys. This year, it plummeted to 26 percent. Hope that the social/political climate will get better is even more scarce—just 22 percent believe it will, down from a third last year.
These results speak to a group that’s troubled, disillusioned and dissatisfied. That’s especially concerning when you consider millennials and Gen Zs make up more than half the world’s population and, together, account for most of the global workforce. They can make or break entire enterprises, and right now, they’re not thrilled with much at all.
