about the study “get ready for generation z” study July 2015 A Study by staffing company Robert Half and Enactus, a student-focused nonprofit that encourages entrepreneurship. The 22 statistics are from this study which surveyed 770 individuals born between 1990 and 1999.*
 http://www.multivu.com/players/English/7074554-robert-half-enactus-generation-z/ *While I believe this to overlap the age range of Millennials (typically defined as those born in the 80s and 90s), employers and leaders can still benefit from the insights as they begin to prepare to work alongside a new generation of professionals.
