The webinar is designed for human resources professionals, of all levels, especially those in recruiting functions, strategic leadership and human resources generalist roles. During the one-hour webinar, participants will learn about the importance of recruiting Generation-Y candidates, how to craft messages that resonate with the generation and how to effectively appeal to the values and needs of this specific demographic.
