Human resources at businesses are getting younger and younger, Gen Z generation accounts for about 30%, creating challenges when 75% of working people feel `generational conflict` at work.

That is part of a report on challenges that businesses are facing published by Anphabe at the recent 100 best places to work in Vietnam conference.

The report points out that human resources at rejuvenated enterprises are the bright spots in the labor market recognized by Anphabe.

However, this trend poses many challenges for businesses when up to 75% of working people admit to observing `generational conflict` at work.

Human resources businesses in Ho Chi Minh City have many young employees.

Anphabe’s survey shows that the `conflict` is especially strong between previous generations including Baby Boomers (born from 1946 to 1964), X (1965 to 1980), Y (1981 to 1996) for Gen Z.

According to Ms. Thanh Nguyen, CEO of Anphabe, the difference in perspective and working style of Gen Z compared to other generations is creating many internal conflicts that need to be resolved.

`In the era of harmony between generations, ensuring connection and support is one of the big reasons why leaders lose sleep,` said Ms. Thanh Nguyen.

What is very notable is that up to 91% of Gen Z expressed the need to `want to create social value` when looking for a new job.

According to Ms. Thanh Nguyen, among companies’ practices to shorten the multi-generational gap, a solution highly appreciated by 90% of Gen Z is `Reverse Mentoring`, also known as Reverse Coaching.

`This method not only helps Gen Z integrate and contribute effectively to the organization but also creates opportunities for other generations to understand and learn from Gen Z,` CEO Anphabe said.

`This will also contribute to creating the ability to be resilient, that is, steadfast and flexible, of working people,` said Ms. Thanh Nguyen.

Anphabe’s survey also shows that a business with a high percentage of resilient employees will be more prosperous and successful.
