How To Attract and Hire Gen Z Employees in the Events Industry

What Gen Z wants: the million-dollar question

These five words strung together have become today’s million-dollar question in more ways than one as the rest of the world tries to better understand the rising generation—one that will make up 30% of the global workforce by 2030.

The question is increasingly being asked in the MICE industry and beyond as today’s professionals start to grapple with the reality that is becoming Gen Z in the workforce. More and more often, we are finding ourselves asking questions like, “What does Gen Z want in a job?” and “What does Gen Z want from older generations and employers?”

Does Gen Z even know want they want for themselves?

As an older member of the generation—and one who talks and reads (and writes!) about topics like these relatively often—even I don’t know the answers to today’s most pressing questions about young people.

There are literally millions—68.6 million, to be exact—and every unique Gen Zer is going to have a different answer depending on what they value most.
