Throughout the many years that we've been undertaking office refurbishments here at Oaktree Interiors, we've seen office design trends change along with the different generations of workers – and the needs and expectations that have come with them. The upcoming workforce of today are known as 'Generation Z' – a group who have grown up with technology and are at one with the fast-paced, almost instant society that we live in today; skills that could be used to benefit the workplace. If you're thinking about adapting your workplace to attract and retain the brightest upcoming talents, by implementing a new office design in Mayfair – then we at Oaktree can help.
When it comes to creating a new office design in Mayfair, elsewhere in London or indeed, anywhere in the South East of England, we are extremely proud to say that we are industry leaders. This is thanks to our passionate and knowledgeable team that work to deliver the ideal office environment for the many clients that we have had over the years.

Generation Z is the term given to people who are starting to reach 'adulthood' in the mid-late 2010's. There aren't any precise dates with which to label the generation, but most experts agree that birth years of people included in Generation Z vary between the mid-1990's, to the early 2000's.
A major identifier for this generation is that from a very young age, people have been comfortable around technology. They tend to have a reliance on the internet and use social media to interact with others. This is reflected by the growth of the digital jobs sector – for many, the prospect of any type of business to not have any kind of presence on the internet today, is unthinkable.
Being tech-savvy – using a number of different devices, on different platforms, to perform different tasks – is likely to see a member of Generation Z more adept at multitasking. The generation has also been noted for its enterprise – the experience of growing up during the great financial recession of the late-2000's has seen a growth of ambition amongst young workers – a trait that can only work to have a positive effect on the businesses that employ them.
By 2020, it's estimated that Generation Z will account for 20% of our workforce and the nature of time will see that number grow year-on-year. This is why it's crucial that a business understands Generation Z and what they expect from their work environment, in order to attract their talents and keep them at the company.
It can be easy to assume that the next generation of workers will be cut from much the same cloth as the current generation. Whereas Generation Y (often known as 'Millennials') are a cohort that approaches work with an open mind and seeking flexibility – thanks to them seeing much change in the world, with regards to technology and how we interact with it – the new generation are quite different, simply because the digital world is all they've ever known.
