Gen Z – they are the 67 million young people born between 1997 and 2012 – and they are the future of your business. They are the most diverse and socially conscious generation ever, and they decide where to work and where to shop based on how businesses support them and the greater community.
Join a discussion with The Shelby Report and Serita Cox, iFoster’s CEO, and Summer Rogers, West Coast director at iFoster about:
- What is driving this “work to live” generation;
- Why labor shortages are the new norm and what employers need to do to compete for and retain Gen Z;
- What has iFoster learned from employing and serving hundreds of Gen Z foster youth, and how might that translate to your business; and
- About iFoster’s employment programs, which have been recognized by the federal government as a promising practice in youth employment, and by AmeriCorps the “Best New Program 2019.”
