As today’s workforce changes, organizations face increased competition to invest in young talent. As demographic shifts see large pools of talent nearing retirement, and declining birth rates shrinking the available workforce, there’s never been a more important time to bring Gen Z into your organization. Strong recruitment and engagement strategies will get young talent through the door...but you must figure out how to keep them. It’s time to consider how your conversion and retention strategies can help transition short-term employees or co-op students into full-time team members to build a future-ready talent pipeline.
Join us for the third event in a multi-part Future-Ready Workforce Series from the University of Waterloo's Work-Learn Institute and discover how employers are converting and retaining young talent in today's challenging market. Access new research insights from Waterloo experts, as well as student and employer guest speakers, that highlight what is changing in our workforce. You'll also learn how organizations can use their values to motivate young talent at work, build a supportive, connected and loyal company culture and encourage meaningful contributions.
During this online event, we’ll share how you can improve your strategies for converting and retaining young talent by:
