Billionaire Mark Cuban said Gen Z would be the “greatest generation” because they consider all factors, including the impact on their mental health, when making decisions.
“I think it’s beautiful and it’s very analogous to when I was just starting out and the technology was just coming or the internet was just coming,” the Dallas Mavericks owner told the “Re:Thinking” podcast. with Adam Grant”.
“Baby boomers will go down in history as the most disappointing generation ever, from sex, drugs and rock and roll to what we have today.”
The billionaire also said “zoomers” – those born between 1995 and 2010 – like his children valued maintaining “balanced sanity”.
He added: “I think organizations will have to understand this more and more as we move forward. Not just for how you treat your employees, but also for what your customers expect.”
Cuban previously told Justin Kan’s “The Quest” podcast that Zoomers value digital goods more than any other generation.
Gen Z has also embraced a new way of working called “silent quitting,” or putting the minimum effort into a job to maintain a healthy work-life balance. Gen Xers might have called it “slack” or “freewheeling,” while millennials might have said it “had limits.”
