Why is Gen Z a "nightmare" in the workplace?

Bosses are finding Gen Z to be something of a nightmare. 

They’ve found that they have poor work ethic, miss meetings, and even ditch the company on their first day of work. 

In contrast, Gen Z workers say their employers don’t understand them. 

Angela Lim, Clearhead CEO, told Mike Hosking that there’s been a distinct cultural shift, boundaries blurring between personal and work lives.  

Another shift, she said, is in values. Lim said that young people want their employers to make a stand on social issues, to have more meaning or purpose in their jobs as opposed to just collecting a paycheck. 

This can cause a lot of friction, she told Hosking, unless both parties are trained in having difficult conversations and know how to incorporate those different work styles.
