RTT – Attracting and Assessing Generation Z Candidates
April 3, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm
A must-attend Resourcing Think Tank for strategic recruitment professionals who want to understand how best to attract and assess Generation Z candidates.
Hosted by Els Hol-Ferman, Head of Talent Acquisition at The Access Group.
In five years time ‘Generation Z’ (those born between 1990-1999) will represent over 20% of our workforce and, just like millennials, are entering our employment landscape with fresh ideals and drivers. Speaking generally, this generation is likely to be: highly ambitious; passionate about ’cause’ and purpose; will seek clear career direction and development; and will thrive on regular feedback (no longer will annual appraisals cut the mustard!).
Whilst these qualities and traits aren’t dissimilar from those associated with millennials, employers are now placing increasingly more importance on ensuring their recruitment processes are designed to attract Generation Z candidates.
Key discussion points for this Think Tank will include:
- Understanding the drivers of this generation and ensuring the recruitment process reflects and promotes them
- Competing with ‘quirky start-up businesses’ in the war for talent and exploring creative ways to attract Generation Zs that go beyond having ‘unlimited holiday’ and an ‘office dog’
- Utilising technology to enhance the attraction and assessment processes e.g. gamification, chatbots, video interviewing etc.
- Striking the balance between attracting Generation Z candidates and not alienating/disengaging other workforce demographics
