What is it about?
Generation Z, the youngest generation is steadily entering the workforce with an entirely unique perspective on careers and workplace norms. Employers need to embrace this generation cohort and use their strengths while providing meaningful work. In this regard, the paper aims to examine the influence of HR policies and practices on Generation Z such as flexible work practices, reward and recognition, compensation and benefits, feedback-seeking behavior, and volunteering work. The paper is a novel attempt to sensitize employers to look beyond the surface by orchestrating a new model for meeting Gen Z expectations.

Of particular interest in this study is the evolving Generation Z at the workplace, which is quite different from its predecessors, as this generation is more about the overall experience at the workplace, whilst being pragmatic, practical, and realistic.
