The study was based on a survey questionnaire, based on the opinions of 2234 people from generation Z. Random sampling was used. Relationships between variables were examined using the chi-square test. Column proportion tests were used to determine significant differences in responses between individuals with different education and place of residence.

More than one third of respondents from generation Z have expectations above the national average gross salary in Poland in the enterprise sector, despite the fact that they have just started their professional career. Practical Implications: The practical business implications are primarily concerned with the use of research findings in the selection process for Generation Z organizations. Originality/value: It turned out that education and place of residence significantly differentiate the expectations and requirements of generation Z towards the salary level.
