The Next Workforce with Generation HR

The Next Workforce with Generation HR

Season 2: Episode 33

Generation Z  is quickly going to make up about 30% of the global workforce. This episode of the HRart of It Podcast is all about highlighting this next generation of HR practitioners and the power and passion they have to change the workplace for the better. This is an interview with Aleah Vaske and Kaylee Wurth, two of the four change makers behind the podcast Generation HR. They originally created Generation HR after the University of Northern Iowa’s Society for Human Resource Management (UNI-SHRM) student organization decided to research the new U.S. Supreme Court ruling stating that federal civil rights law prohibits employers from discriminating against workers on the basis of their sexual orientation or gender identity. Once they realized that this groundbreaking ruling was neither known about nor understood on campus and in workplaces throughout their community, these driven college students created the Generation HR podcast to educate their community. You won’t want to miss this conversation about Gen Z’s perspective, priorities and the power they have to make real positive change in the world.
