Generation Z. It is the first generation to know only a digital world. Its members grew up playing on their parents’ mobile devices, and many had their own smartphone as early as elementary school. Now that they’re on the brink of entering the job market, older workers are wondering how these ‘digital natives’ will impact the workforce.
There are many other monikers given to this generation, including Digital Natives, Globals, Post-Millennials, Millennials-On-Steroids, iGeneration, Plurals, the Homeland Generation, Centennials, and Delta Generation, or Deltas. That the generation has such an array of names in many ways illustrates the general lack of understanding about them, says a new report by talent consultant Kevin Sheridan.

Mr. Sheridan is an internationally-recognized keynote speaker, a New York Times bestselling author and a sought-after voice on the subject of employee engagement. Having spent 30 years as a human capital management consultant, he has helped some of the world’s largest corporations rebuild cultures that foster productive engagement, earning him several distinctive awards and honors.
