Launch of the Eight Roads & Hibob Talent Report

The Eight Roads Ventures Europe team has launched the ‘Young Generation in Tech’ (YGIT) report, in collaboration with our portfolio company Hibob, the global HR tech platform.

Following two years of the pandemic, and the aftershocks of ‘The Great Resignation’, we wanted to take a temperature of the Gen Z and Millennial cohort of tech workers - a vital foundation for the future of tech. 

We surveyed 2,005 20-30-year-olds across Europe to understand their motivations, what they’re looking for from their roles and their expectations for the future at work. Countries included the UK, Ireland, Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, France, Spain.

Our survey reveals that the young generation is expressing disappointment with their experiences. Over half (54%) of all young tech workers in Europe are considering a change of career. 

The YGIT cohort is the future of tech. Understanding what drives their workplace motivations and the best way to help them manage their careers will help the tech industry craft programs to retain them, develop them, give them a sense of security and belonging.

We hope our findings can inspire founders, CEOs and leaders to continue to invest in this generation.
