As Gen Z enters the workforce, company culture becomes more pertinent. According to a LinkedIn survey, 87 percent of Gen Z respondents said they would turn down or quit a job if the employer’s values did not align with their own.  

Among both https://montco.today/tag/gen-z/Gen Z (1997–2012) and Millennials (1981–1996), 60 percent told LinkedIn that company values are a dealbreaker.  

Josh Graff, a managing director at LinkedIn, spoke to CNBC Make It’s Sophie Kiderlin on why that is.  

“Younger generations, in particular, want to work for companies where they can evoke change, where they can make a difference,” he said.  

Graff says this is a recent shift driven by the COVID-19 pandemic and an increase in social and political awareness.  

According to a FlexJob survey, one-third of employees have said they will quit or have quit over the past six months. The driving factor for this has been “toxic company culture.”  

Other reasons were low salary, poor management style, and lack of work-like-balance, reported Kate Dore for CNBC.  

FlexJobs suggests that resigners give employers two-week notices, so as not to burn bridges.
