Coworking spaces make London top destination for Gen Z workers

(2 minutes to read)

Generation Z is the term given to anyone born between 1997 and 2012, and who are "digital natives who value security, diversity, and autonomy, and aim to achieve it through pragmatism and determination."

Latest research has revealed that London is the top destination for Generation Z workers thanks to a growing number of coworking spaces.

The 2019 Generation Z city index, compiled by the apartment search site Nestpick, found that London scored a perfect ‘100’ for coworking spaces – beating New York (98.12) into second place.

In fact, London now has over 1400 flexible workspace locations according to the latest data from global workspace brokerage Office Freedom.

Coworking has long been the preferred route for freelancers and start-up businesses but is interestingly now attracting big businesses too.

The study examined 110 cities and measured 22 factors under four broad headings: digitisation, business, principles, and leisure. Each city was given a score out of 100, the total of the weighted averages of each of the four categories. London and Manchester make it into the top 20.

The oldest members of Generation Z graduated this year and so these cities are becoming sought-after career destinations for Gen Zers looking for the best places to live and work

Flexible workspace is naturally appealing for entrepreneurial Generation Zers as it represents a low risk, affordable way into office rental.
