LOS ANGELES, Aug. 11, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- With global influence, Chris Collins, founder of Syndicate X, a "Secret Society for Entrepreneurs and Leaders," author of best-selling business book Gamification: Playing for Profits, and the host of Chris Collins Unleashed, finds commonalities and predicts how Millennials will welcome Generation Z into the workforce.

"Millennials may be one of the most entrepreneurial generations the world has ever seen," reveals Collins. "In today's business model, Millennials (people between the ages of 20-35) prefer that you be a coach, not a boss. I don't think they work harder, they work smarter."

Suffice it to say, Millennials are not children anymore. In fact, the oldest of them are now 35. Millennials are increasingly taking leadership roles within organizations. In addition to managing their peers, Millennials will soon be managing Gen Z employees.

With a technology-based commonality between Millennials and Gen Z, Collins continues, "They've grown up with technology, and they understand how to automate things. It's funny how Millennials will come into a job that somebody's been doing for a long time, and they'll look at the job, and they'll say, 'We can automate that. We can get those two programs, etc …'"

According to analysts at Goldman Sachs, America's youngest generation, "Gen-Z" (those born after 1998), are now entering their formative years and rising in influence. At nearly 70 million strong, the eldest of which are now entering college and/or the workforce, this group will soon outnumber their Millennial predecessors.

"They work more efficiently than my generation, I think. They don't accept that that's how it's always been, so that's how it has to be. They connect the dots in a different way. They don't accept," Collins adds.

Smart companies and brands are now working quickly to understand this next generation as employees as well as consumers.

"My experience has been more that they're more about the purpose. With social media they can create an image and curate that without having a ton of money. The companies that do the best with loyalty will be the companies that are selling a purpose or a lifestyle," Collins expertly concludes. "We need to either start a business revolution or soon we might all be working for Amazon.com."
