Remote work and Knowledge Exchange Strategies in the Opinions of Generation Z
Keywords:knowledge exchange, pandemic COVID-19, remote work, generation Z
The situation of the Covid-19 pandemic has forced many companies to switch to a remote work system. This phenomenon took a massive form in the first stage of the pandemic mainly due to the lockdown. However, in the following months, many employees found this professional arrangement convenient and conducive to the organisation of work and personal life. Remote work seems to be particularly attractive for employees of the young generation. At the same time, employers have noticed that this form of work definitely has benefits, but also brings disadvantages. Today, management practitioners are increasingly pointing to the hybrid work model as the preferred one. In order to learn about the preferences of the Generation Z employees in terms of the forms of work and their impact on various aspects of work, a survey was designed. The research was conducted in December 2021 on a sample of the Generation Z representatives with the aim to identify their attitudes and opinions about the remote type of work based on their experiences and expectations. For the research purposes, the Likert scale-based questionnaire technique was applied. The data was analysed in the STATISTICA program using Kruskal-Wallis ANOVA on ranks test, Mann-Whitney test, and the Pearson's chi-square test. The strength of the correlation between the variables was assessed using the Spearman's rank correlation coefficient. The results of the research reveal interesting dependencies between the reasons for knowledge exchange in the remote work.
