Embracing the Future: Employing Gen Z

In today's fast-paced construction industry, adaptability is crucial for maintaining a competitive edge.

At DRG Interior and Building Solutions, we recognise the significance of embracing the strengths and viewpoints of every generation, including the dynamic Generation Z. With our core values of integrity, positive attitude, communication, focus & commitment and continuous improvement, we believe in creating a dynamic and inclusive workplace that not only meets the demands of the present but also prepares for the challenges of the future.  

The ‘Zoomers’ born between 1997 and 2012 are the youngest and most diverse generation in history and bring a range of unique qualities to the workplace. With their digital proficiency, entrepreneurial mindset, and desire for purposeful work, they offer immense value to any company.

By actively seeking out and welcoming Gen Z talent, we strive to infuse new energy, innovative ideas, and a contemporary approach into our projects. We acknowledge their tech-savviness and expect them to utilise digital tools and platforms to enhance project management, communication, and collaboration both within our organisation and with our clients.  

We highly value the passion of our Gen Z employees for social and environmental issues, and we expect them to actively contribute to our sustainability initiatives and participate in socially responsible practices. By integrating our values, including Gen Z's commitment to environmental sustainability, we aim to drive positive change in our company and the communities we serve. As a company, we actively pursue eco-friendly methods and materials, and we believe that Gen Z employees will play a vital role in driving these initiatives forward

Collaboration lies at the core of Gen Z's values. They thrive in team-oriented environments and prioritise strong communication and co-operation. We anticipate that their collaborative mindset will significantly contribute to successful project execution and cultivate a culture of teamwork at DRG.

Recognising their preference for flexible work arrangements, we are open to flexible working models and have been putting this into practice since the Covid19 pandemic. This ensures our employees can maintain a healthy work-life balance while making effective contributions to project success.

As we embrace technology, including AI, in our operations, we leverage digital tools like Procore and SharePoint to streamline processes, increase efficiency, and enhance project outcomes.

By incorporating Gen Z perspectives, we demonstrate our forward-thinking approach in the construction industry. This commitment ensures our continued success in the construction industry, keeping us at the forefront of innovation and excellence as the industry evolves. At DRG Interior and Building Solutions, we firmly believe that embracing Generation Z is a crucial step towards a vibrant and sustainable future.
