The Power of Gen Z: Reshaping the future of the workplace

About this event

Generation Z, people born between 1995 and 2010, are beginning to enter the workplace at a time when the world of work is changing dramatically. 

These digital natives have grown up with social media and are the most globally peer-connected generation, arguably making them more socially and environmentally aware than the generations that came before them. 

While this familiarity with tech and appetite for inclusivity and sustainability will help transform the world of work for good, Gen Z are facing a multitude of challenges – especially as we emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic. Mental health and wellbeing is a worry for 51% of people in this group, and 58% cite job security as a key concern. 

This Personnel Today webinar, in association with ACCA, will discuss the need to facilitate a good work-life balance, prioritise wellbeing and provide opportunities for skills development and rapid career progression in order to attract top Gen Z talent. 

Topics to be covered include:

  • What matters to Gen Z when it comes to work
  • What the key concerns among this age group are and how organisations can help address them
  • How the ambitions of younger people will help shape the next generation of work
  • How organisations can harness the potential of Gen Z.

This hour-long webinar is free to attend and will feature a presentation of the key findings from ACCA’s Ground-breakers: Gen Z and the future of accountancy report, followed by a panel discussion and Q&A with industry experts. Register to secure your place now.

This 60-minute webinar includes a live Q&A session where attendees can pose their questions.
