The Truth About Gen-Z and Millennial Fashion Employees 

In the first of a three-part BoF Careers white paper series, we explore how fashion companies big and small can engage, develop and retain Gen-Z and Millennial employees.

We share objective feedback from both generational cohorts and reveal the disparity between employee sentiment and action on key substantive issues.

80% of Gen-Z and Millennial employees view transparency around their peers’ salaries as increasingly important.

78% percent of Gen-Z respondents say creating positive societal impact is critical to long-term retention.
