2017 Tools & Tactics Webinar: Riding the Demographic Wave – Preparing for Gen Z

DMECTools & Tactics

Thursday, September 28

9:00 am PT | 12:00 pm ET

For the first time in our workplace history, between four and five generations are actively participating in the labor force. Millennials now comprise the largest portion of the U.S. labor force, and garner a lot of attention. However, Generation Z is graduating from high school and college and will soon be entering the workplace. Employers have long been talking about how to engage Millennials, but Generation Z brings a totally different set of expectations.

This session will help employers start to think through and understand Generation Z and how they can begin to integrate them into the ever-evolving, multi-generation workplace. From work behaviors to workspace and building design, Generation Z is bringing a whole new perspective to work.
