About This Recipe


Gen Z is the cohort of teenagers and young adults who have grown up with technology. Their assumption that the tech will always be there and will always work, informs how they engage with the world. Gen Z is prone to social-media-induced awareness and anxiety, loves having control and solving problems, and needs strong boundaries and guidelines from parents and managers.

This is also the generation that will be more than a third of the workforce by 2025, and that will wield significant spending power by the end of the current decade. The business world specifically is therefore well advised to take Gen Z seriously.

In this recipe, Marko Stavrou, proud Gen Z’er, entrepreneur and co-founder of HustlersGlobal, shares valuable insights and tips with Gen Z’ers and us older folk on how to better live and work together.
