HR Punk and Decoding the Needs of Generation Z in the Workplace

The HR Punk event, co-organised by, aimed to bring together thought leaders and HR professionals to discuss the future of HR in a constantly evolving environment.

As Generation Z begins to dominate the population, HR Punk has addressed a wide range of topics that reflect this. Topics covered included the impact of technology on HR practices, the importance of diversity and inclusion, and evolving workforce expectations.

The event highlighted the indispensable role of technology in human resource management. Generation Z, being the first true digital native, requires seamless integration of technology in the workplace. Discussions called for HR professionals to use innovative recruitment, onboarding and employee engagement tools to stay ahead of the talent game.

Generation Z also places a strong emphasis on equality and an inclusive environment. The event sparked conversations about practical steps organisations can take to promote diversity and ensure equal opportunities for all employees.
Generation Z also expects more flexibility in terms of teleworking, flexible working hours and alternative working arrangements.

The overriding theme of Generation Z was a commitment to continuous learning. The event discussed the importance of up-skilling initiatives and professional development programmes to retain employees and equip them with the skills needed in a rapidly evolving labour market.

We believe that HR Punk will serve as a catalyst for change and challenge HR professionals to rethink their strategies and practices in response to the unique needs and aspirations of Generation Z.

We are already looking forward to the next HR Punk full of energy and punk spirit, which will take place in Nitra in April.
