Gen-Z – the generation recruiters can't afford to ignore
Although it feels like recent history, the world has shifted on its axis since the year 2000. Baby Boomers, Gen-X and most Millennials grew up with a consistent approach to jobs and careers.
But as we enter 2021, there has never been a bigger gap between early talent candidates and their social norms, and the employer branding and value proposition approaches that are prevalent in the recruiting and hiring process.
Just how effective are current recruitment approaches (the technology, messages, processes and tools used) when it comes to engaging with and hiring “early talent”?
Our panel will discuss:
