In this episode of Talking Talent, we’re talking about the next generation workforce. For years, this conversation has been about millennials, but now the oldest millennials are in their late-30s and the youngest, their mid-20s. Now, most recent graduates are members of Generation Z.
How do employers attract and retain this new generation of workers? As they enter the workforce and start their careers, what sets them apart? And what are they looking for in an employer?
Joining us to talk about this is Kathryn Minshew, the CEO & Founder of The Muse, a career platform used by more than 75 million people to research companies and careers. In 2018, The Muse was named one of Fast Company’s 50 Most Innovative Companies in the World.
Kathryn is also the author of “The New Rules of Work,” a Wall Street Journal national bestseller. She has spoken at MIT and Harvard, contributed to the WSJ and HBR, and appeared on TODAY and CNN. She has also been named to SmartCEO’s Future50 Visionary CEOs and Inc.’s 35 Under 35. Kathryn worked on HPV vaccine introduction in Rwanda with the Clinton Health Access Initiative before founding The Muse and was previously at McKinsey & Company.
Additionally, Kathryn is the host of a new podcast from The Muse called “The New Rules of Work,” which interviews experts and leaders to explore the changing landscape of work. The New Rules of Work launched in November.
