A new survey has revealed that Generation Z is happier working in a traditional office environment than in their own home.
The Unispace research shows that of the 3,000 office workers questioned, 78% of Gen Z find it easier to bond with colleagues in the workplace and 81% say that working from home makes them feel disconnected from their peers.
According to the findings, 79% of Gen Z respondents said they felt more active when working in the office, while for older workers this figure sits at 66%.
Sixty per cent of Gen Z workers said that work-from-home restrictions made them value the office more, whereas this figure stood at just 43% for older workers.
Stuart Finnie, Head of Design at Unispace, commented on the findings, “While younger generations may face the stereotype of being a ‘digital-only’ group of workers, our research clearly shows that they prioritise the ability to learn from others face to face. And despite prevailing technology, nothing can replace the sense of belonging that in-person socialisation can bring.”
