HIRED! Recruiting & Engaging Young Professionals

As Baby Boomers begin to retire in increasing numbers, the ability to recruiting and engage the Gen Y, or Millennial workforce is key. Currently, Gen Y accounts for approximately 50% of the world’s population and this number is expected to double in 2015. By 2025, Gen Y will encompass 75% of the workforce. These young professionals hold different traits and values than previous generation. In this seminar, nationally-recognized career coach Ryan Kahn shares his experiences in working with young professionals and provides insights on attracting and motivating young talent.

These Digital Natives may look similar to the much talked about Gen Y, but Gen Z’s unique characteristics make them a completely different generation. This presentation starts by taking a look back at Millennials – how they continue to shape the workforce and how HR professionals continue to adapt to meet the interests and needs of this generation – as well as look at what’s coming post-Gen Y. We’ll review Gen Z’s unique attitudes and mindset, discussing what companies will need to do in order to competitively recruit and retain these young professionals.
