How Companies Can Best Engage Gen Z and Millennials

Thursday, October 27, 2016 1:00pm - 2:00pm EDT  
Host: Future Workplace Webinars
By: Jim Link, Chief Human Resources Officer, Randstad North America and Dan Schawbel, Partner and Research Director, Future Workplace

In 2016, the oldest members of Generation Z have just entered the workforce and Millennials are beginning to take on management roles. On the heels of the Gen Z and Millennial research conducted in 2014, Randstad and Future Workplace teamed up again to take a closer look at how time and new employment commitments may have changed these young workers’ perspectives and expectations. Learn how to configure your workplace to best engage these generations and further develop your organizational culture to take advantage of their strengths, passions and interests. Listen to real examples of companies that have redesigned their talent attraction, retention and engagement efforts in order to cater to these young generations and how it has positively impacted their organizations.
