Gen Z is an incredibly diverse generation. Because of this, they’re innovative, creative, and open-minded, making them some of the best people to work with.
Also, despite spending a lot of time in the digital world, Gen Zers lack meaningful interactions in their day-to-day, fueling their loneliness.
Springtide Research Institute did a recent study on Gen Z. Without an adult mentor in their life, 58% said they sometimes or always have no one to talk to. That number dropped 10% with the addition of just one adult mentor in their lives. So, if Gen Z is seeking mentorship for anything, it’s to curb the loneliness they feel so often. And that gives mentors an emotionally-bound in.
