Key takeaways

The lazy girl job trend serves as an important reminder that employers need to listen to their employees and champion a healthy work-life balance.

The trend also opens discussion about the particular stigmas and biases faced by women in the workplace.

Gen-Z and their broader approaches to work are challenging dominant narratives of corporate culture for the good.
