Aims and Objectives
The first intellectual output is a methodology providing methods, tools and best practices for SMEs to create an attractive, supporting and retaining working environment, based on the results of the gen Z survey and further research. It aims to help companies gain better understanding of the attitudes, motivators and drives of gen Z, learning how to support and motivate them to work more productively, how to satisfy their needs as employees and how to manage and deal with conflicts.

The second intellectual output closely linked with the methodology is the Mentor training, developed based on our surveys of European SMEs’ and gen Z’s demands.

The third intellectual output of the project is a soft skill training material produced for members of gen Z, based on the company survey and further research, prepared in a form adjusted to gen Z’s learning ways. This will help young employees to be more prepared for,  and more confident and content at work, more assertive and able to solve problems due to understanding the demands of the job market and the working styles of older generations.
