Gen Z Smartphone Dependence

How attached is Gen Z to their smartphones?

We led a national study to uncover the answer!

In our study, The State of Gen Z 2018, we found that over 30% of Gen Z feels uncomfortable if they’re away from their phone for more than 30 minutes! Digging deeper, a portion of Gen Z feel uncomfortable in an even shorter time frame.

Gen Z’s dependence on their smartphones is already impacting our clients in everything from employee engagement and workplace norms to getting Gen Z’s attention when marketing a product or service. Not to mention Gen Z at school and college.

One new trend to pay close attention to that we are studying at CGK: Ghosting. This is what happens when an employee is hired, agrees to show up to work, but then never arrives on the first day of work. Yes! This happens. And right now, it is happening a lot and creating tremendous frustration for employers. At some point, the employer-employee dynamic will likely change and become more balanced, but for the foreseeable future, ghosting is likely to stick around—so we need to take action to get new hires to stick around, too!

I love working with repeat clients because I get to know their team, culture, challenges, opportunities, and strengths over a long period. Going into the details with clients and working with their teams consistently also builds momentum for action, buy-in, trust, innovation, and results across their organization.
