Workplace Application:
Learn three common priorities to recruit, retain and develop the Latinx community. 

The population of the United States and its workforce will become substantially more Latinx in the coming decades. The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that Hispanics represented 17.4% of the population in 2014 but will represent 28.6% by 2060. According to another metric, which appeared in a SHRM publication, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that one in every two workers who enter the workforce in 2025 will be Hispanic. Companies that actively plan for these changes in demographics will be primed for success; Hispanics already represent a higher percentage of top candidates and having them onboard will provide businesses with a better understanding of the increasingly Hispanic markets. But there’s more that goes into recruiting top Latinx Millennials and members of Gen Z than some might think. Upon completion, participants will learn what makes Latinx Millennials and members of Gen Z different from mainstream Millennials and Gen Z.

Learning Objectives:

  • Upon completion, the participant will understand LatinX values, needs and personal expectations
  • Upon completion, the participants will learn what makes LatinX Millennials/GenZ different from the mainstream Millennials/Gen Z
  • Upon completion, the participants will 3 LatinX Millennials/GenZ expectations of employers
