SHL, the global leader in people science and technology, and The Adecco Group, a global Human Resources provider and temporary staffing firm, released a study that explains how GenerationZ can offer unique skills that have been deemed critical to overcoming the waves of change that companies are experiencing today.

SHL’s Graduate Hiring Solution was the cornerstone of the study that employed the profiles of young leaders who applied for Adecco Group’s CEO for One Month program.

It found that GenZ’s cognitive diversity – the difference among us due to our life experiences, worldview, and how we process information – can be leveraged for high potential and leadership positions in the future.
