Overview

Get Up to Speed on Generation Z

Having grown up post 9/11, in the wake of the great recession and always connected online, Gen Z is an emerging group that your entire company needs to understand, from HR to marketing.

Gen Z represents 23 million Americans born between 1994 and 2010. They have a combined buying power of $43 billion and influence an additional $600 billion of family spending. They have already started to seize entry-level positions at companies worldwide and have different behaviors, needs and work styles than older generations.

Dan Schawbel has spent the past year learning about Gen Z through a global research study which spanned across the world, from America to China to South Africa. The first of its kind, the study sought to understand the implications of this generation from both a workplace and consumer perspective.

What You Will Learn

Schawbel found that while Gen Y is more optimistic, Gen Z is realistic and has a strong sense of career management, philanthropy and entrepreneurship. This self-sufficient and tech savvy generation also pose new threats and opportunities for managers, marketers and HR professionals.

Join us as we explore:

•  Ways that they are different than Gen Y's, Gen X's and boomers and how to best connect with them.
• Their workplace preferences, values and career goals.
•  How to best sell to Gen Z and what changes you need to make in your organization to best serve them.
 
You’ll also hear a number of case studies highlighting companies that are already successfully connecting to Gen Z. While attending this program is FREE, reservations are required.
