Get ready to hire Generation Z
American Express Open Forum    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Just as companies have adjusted to the demands of Generation Y, a new generation is set to graduate from college: Generation Z. William Strauss and Neil Howe set the standard for generational analysis in their book: "Generations: The History of America's Future 1584 to 2069."
