Young people's expectations of work and readiness of the workplace: Two sides of the same coin?

  The aim of this research is to examine high-potential Generation-Z’s (young people aged 16-18 years in full-time education who demonstrate key leadership qualities and attributes) expectations of work and the contemporary workplace. The expectations of young people on the cusp of making their education-to-work transition will be compared with employers’ expectations of young employees in order to assess contemporary workplace readiness for the emerging workforce and whether young people’s expectations correspond (or not) with the skills and attributes required in modern and future workplaces.
