4. Contribution to the world

“To win the hearts of Generation Z, companies and employers will need to highlight their efforts to be good global citizens. And actions speak louder than words: Companies must demonstrate their commitment to a broader set of societal challenges such as sustainability, climate change, and hunger.”

“Employees are going to want to work for organizations that can get behind a purpose and not just talk about it but actually live it.”

Tawanda Starms, VP of Talent and Culture at Chipotle

5. Culture

Learning oriented cultures tend to be more diverse and inclusive

“I think it says a lot about Chipotle as a company that they’re willing to invest in their people because cultivating a better world doesn’t just mean food and the food industry. It also means cultivating people and they truly do do that.”

Alyssa Riegel, Chipotle Employee and Learner
