A lot of young people in tech are leaving their companies due to a lack of culture and inclusion.
Indeed, a recent study by Mthree revealed that 59% of people between 18 and 24 years old had quit or were thinking of quitting because of a bad company culture that made them uncomfortable. It is even more highlighted in under-represented groups as 64% of female respondents and 67% of mixed-race backgrounds are considering leaving.
This trend is quite concerning as company culture remains essential when attracting new talents. Hence, it is vital that businesses really listen to their young employees across all departments and respond to their needs in order to improve inclusion and diversity in the long run.
Besides, this lack of diversity in IT can lead young people to seek another career path as they do not see other people like them to aspire to. The work is not in question but rather the culture at work which has made around 71% of young people in tech uncomfortable because of their gender, ethnicity, socioeconomic background, or due to the fact that they are neurodiverse.
