The Danish and Norwegian Chamber of commerce invited Steen Enrico, senior partner at PLH Arkitekter, to Vilnius, to give a presentation about how companies can create the best working environments for their employees. In 2025, 75 % of the workforce in Denmark will be employees from the generations Y (born 1977 – 1995) and Z (born 1996-2015).
Generation Y and Z
Generation Y wants to change the world and prefers to have a large network of friends at work. It is important to them that their leader acts more like a mentor than a boss. Moreover, it is focal for this generation to collaborate well with their co-workers instead of internal competition, which is why teamwork and workshops are an essential element of their working style.
The younger Generation Z appreciates having order and structure. This generation has studied in modern school environments where they had the opportunity to move around and work in different areas. Therefore, they prefer to have working stations in different zones, where it is possible to contemplate and meditate.
