Recruiting Gen Z vs. Recruiting Millennials: A Whole New Ballgame

“In all my travels, I’ve seen 2 of the 7 Wonders of the World, Machu Picchu (AD 1450, Peru) & Taj Mahal (AD 1648, India). I plan to see all of them before I exit stage left.” – William Tincup

In this session, the speaker would like for you to think of millennials as Machu Picchu and Gen Z as the Taj Mahal. Both are awesome. Really awesome actually! Yet both could not be more different from one another. The similarities and differences between these two fantastic generations at work are what this session will explore.

When companies recruit millennials (oldest being 38), they have a bag of tricks, tactics, and strategies that kind of work but with the oldest of Gen Z being 23, they are not ready to recruit this generation. None of them are ready. So, as any great tourist would, they prepare for the journey. The session will include a review of what’s currently working with recruiting both generations and covers:

  • How recruiting Gen Z is different than any generation recruited before
  • What Gen Z cares about and doesn’t care about when it comes to work/workplace
  • How to effectively recruit the best from both generations
