About Zconomy: How Gen Z is Going to Change the Future of Business—and What To Do About It
Gen Z is here—and they are poised to change everything. This new, engaged generation is already 24 years old, the fastest-growing generation of employees, and the most important generation of consumers and trendsetters. Gen Z has a very different approach to employment as well as shopping, buying, and influencing. This large, diverse generation doesn’t remember 9/11, has always had social media, and believes COVID-19 is their Generation Defining Moment. In Zconomy, Jason Dorsey and Denise Villa, PhD, separate myth from truth about Gen Z so every leader, marketer, employer, and parent knows how to understand and engage this incredibly important generation. Packed with surprising research discoveries, practical how-to, and frontline stories, Zconomy is the missing solution to unlock the potential of Gen Z at this critical time in their emergence.
“Zconomy delivers the solution leaders need to understand Gen Z and take action right away.” -Stev Cannon, Former CEO, Mercedes-Benz USA
“Zconomy is a must-read guide from the most authoritative voices on generational studies of our time.” Andrea Brimmer, CMO, Ally Financial
