Generation Z: Understanding the Next Generation of Worker

Date: Oct. 28, 2014

Time: 2:30 p.m. ET


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. Gen Z represents 23 million Americans born between 1994 and 2010. Dan Schawbel has spent the past year learning about Gen Z through a research study that spanned the globe, from America to Canada 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. 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 poses new threats and opportunities for HR professionals and managers. In this session, you’ll learn the specific steps employers need to take to successfully attract and retain this generation of worker—and fully integrate these individuals into the workplace.

Among other things, attendees will:
* Figure out how Gen Z is different than Gen Y, Gen X and boomers and how best to connect with this generation;
* Learn about their workplace preferences, values and career goals—and the most effective way to incorporate this information into your hiring and managing strategies; and
* Hear different case studies of companies that are already successfully connecting to Gen Z.

Workforce Planning and Analytics: How to Create or Advance Your Organization's Ability to Generate Actionable Workforce Insight

Date: October 29, 2014

Time: 2:30 p.m. ET


Workforce planning.  Workforce analytics.  Predictive analytics.  Scenario planning.  What do all these terms mean?  Do they represent valuable services, or are they words some are using today to merely sound smart?  In other words, are these services a non-negotiable in the new economy, or are they still a nice-to-have? Answer: They’re non-negotiable! Generating meaningful and actionable workforce insight is now an organizational requirement.  Leaders who fail to invest in such initiatives are not leveraging their data assets—the data residing within the multitude of systems throughout the employee life-cycle; data representing everything from recruiting and selection, to learning and engagement, to performance and compensation. As a result, these leaders are incurring unnecessary risk for their organizations and, frankly, being irresponsible. In contrast, those making such investments are incurring less business risk through better business continuity, recruiting and development efficiency, and elevated confidence that future talent-related investments will reap the desired return.

In this webinar, Al Adamsen, founder of the Talent Strategy Institute, will explore how organizations that have an ongoing workforce planning and analytics capability are applying new measurements, new processes and new technologies to transform HR and enhance its effectiveness. In the end, participants will walk away with a better understanding of what’s working, what’s not and what the future holds, along with how to bring that future to life.

About the Presenter:

Al Adamsen is a globally recognized thought leader, advisor and educator in the areas of talent strategy, workforce planning and analytics, talent measurement, and organizational change.  He’s the Founder & Executive Director of the Talent Strategy Institute (TSI), a global association committed to expanding the generation and use of meaningful workforce insight.  Before founding TSI, Al held leadership roles at Ernst & Young and Gap Inc.  Over his career he’s served clients such as Disney, Starbucks, Boeing, Comcast, Heinz, Mayo Clinic, Stanford University, among others.
