The survey found that when it comes to generational differences, younger workers—Millennials (born between 1981 and 1994) and those from Gen Z (born between 1995 and 2010)—are slightly more satisfied with their jobs than Gen X (born between 1965 and 1980), as 25 percent of 26-35-year-olds are "extremely satisfied," while only 18 percent of 36-50-year-olds are.

For Millennials and Gen Z, that satisfaction is tied to their company's role in the world. Four out of five Gen Z workers, for example, believe their company needs to take a stance on global issues.

The younger generations are more inclined to want to work in non-traditional spaces. A shared or open workspace is much more desirable to your typical Gen Z employee, who says it helps them feel more motivated and make stronger connections with their team members. Your average Baby Boomer (born between 1946 and 1964) still wants a traditional office, which they take as a sign of being valued. So, allowing for both may be the answer for today's modern employer.
