Location: Neo, 9 Charlotte Street, Manchester, M1 4ET

In 2025, 75% of the workforce will be made up of millennials and Gen Z.  As employers focus on attracting millennial talent, they must not ignore the aspirations and demands of Gen Z and prepare themselves for the changing demographics of the workforce to compete in the war on talent.

With Gen Z increasingly looking for alternative routes into the workplace, are traditional graduate schemes the best ways to attract and retain top Gen Z talent? Are these methods outdated and damaging your overall employer brand? How are Gen Z looking to enter the workforce and how are companies making their talent strategies modern and competitive?

Come and hear from top HR professionals on what talent strategies are effective in securing top talent, future proofing your workforce and reinforcing your employer brand. Talent is the key to company growth, make sure you’re not stifling yours.

Ben founded Tempo in 2017 and since its launch has helped businesses including Monzo and Bulb scale quickly and efficiently. But Ben’s mission to disrupt the world of recruitment does not stop here.
