Corporate apparel for the younger generations
With Generation Z now entering the workforce in sizable numbers, we are shifting the national conversation from a longtime focus on Millennials. Gen Z generally refers to people born between the early 1990s and the mid-2000s, putting the oldest folks in this group in their late 20s. For a size comparison, it is estimated that 1 in 4 Americans fall in Gen Z, making them the third largest age group, behind Millennials and Gen X. Now that this cohort is joining the workforce, we must evaluate corporate gifts, custom apparel, and incentives and learn what motivates and interests them. When done correctly with this group, you can use custom company apparel as a recruiting tool, a way to build your brand internally, and a technique to establish company loyalty.
A large portion of our employees here at All-County Apparel are recent college grads, so we have a front row seat to the ideas and preferences of Gen Z. We can directly tap into corporate apparel and gift trends just by seeing what our own employees wear and use around the office. Just a few of our office favorites are the following:
