Meet the Globals: What You Need to Know Now About Gen Z

2017 Talent Management Conference & Exposition
Workplace Application: This session will show you how to prepare for the next generation of workers, who enter the workforce with a new set of expectations and needs.

We've heard about the Millennials, but what about the Globals, who are already entering your offices as interns? Shifting away from the Millennial mindset, the Globals are shaping up to be a realistic, go-getter, “insta-gen” that truly has had influences from around the world since birth. This session will uncover how this generation will please those from Generation X but frustrate their Millennial managers. This session will help you:

·         Learn which generational workplace trends Globals will emulate and which they will reject.

·         Gain perspective on how to capitalize on their entrepreneurial spirit to make them more effective within their roles.

·         Recognize how their multicultural acceptance creates a one-world mindset that will expand virtual and local business
           into new sectors/environments.

·         Understand how to teach this generation to convert their overload of data into accessible and useful knowledge.

·         Learn to outline new career titles and nonlinear career progressions that will allow for Globals to follow
           and develop their skills and interests.
