What matters most to 14-18 yr old Survey.

NZ youth have an opportunity to participate in an international survey that asks 14-18 year olds what kind of job that they want and what matters most to them? The findings will be published in a report entitled “Facing the Future” with the OECD during the World Economic Forum in late January 2020 in Davos.

Please invite any clients or 14-18yrs olds in your life to complete the online survey here

Gen Z 'disruption ready' - MYOB Future of Work Report 2019

Despite facing unprecedented changes in technology and automation, and expecting a lifetime of training to cope with the demands of between two and five career changes, the latest generation to enter the workforce are resilient, well-educated and ready for disruption, according to the latest MYOB Future of Work report.

The report, based on an MYOB Business Monitor Snapshot survey of over 500 respondents aged 18-24 from around the country, covers Generation Z’s views on their education, the modern workplace and the changes they expect to see over the coming decade. 

Attached is the report, which you can also view along with the media release and video news report on our media centre here:
