64All of their communication is chat based; short, informal, and instantaneous. Things like email and a corporate job are one and the same; no fun and brutal. They’re extremely pragmatic. In other words, things are dealt with sensibly and realistically. Forget any theoretical considerations, or even optimism, sadly.

Are you thinking about Gen Z yet? Millennials are about to be old news, and the generation following them has a completely different set of needs and values. This new group is going to be our target renters before we know it. For some properties, they already are.

So who is Gen Z? They were born after 1995, which means the oldest of the group is already 21. While we don’t know much about Gen Z yet, we do know a lot about the environment they are growing up in.

By | Understanding Generational Differences: How to Appeal to Different Age Groups | No Comments

When I have the rare opportunity to communicate face-to-face with an adult (other than my husband) during the week, it is usually with a Gen Y mom.

Generation Y and the “Dreaded” Performance Review

We live in the information age. Information is freely exchanged and knowledge is easily accessed through our finger tips. It is changing our expectation—we want it—and we want it now!

The workforce is changing too. The old-fashioned processes companies have relied on for the last two generations simply aren’t cutting it anymore.

Loyalty and the Y Generation: When it comes to Brand Trust and Loyalty, Gen Y is Different

Lifetime trust to a brand is for the most part, over. They don’t trust brands or the marketing companies put behind them.
