Regional ACE Webinar: Move Over Millennials, Gen Z is the New Emerging Professional

Media has never covered a generation as much as they cover Millennials. But Gen Z professionals are now emerging in the workplace and they are different from their Millennial peers. Find out what makes Gen Z tick, and where they are different than other generations in the workplace. Hear emerging trends and expectations that help define Gen Z’s college to career experience. This isn’t your standard generations presentation – get ready to experience the world through the eyes of a Gen Zer.

During this webinar we’ll talk a look at Gen Z behavior and what motivates students and employees in this population. We’ll share best practices regarding how to better communicate and understand Gen Z expectations at school and in the workplace, and we’ll cover how to best recruit them.
