HAMLET — Richmond Community College will host its Morning Mingle on Tuesday, May 3, starting at 8 a.m. at the Robinette Building in Rockingham.
The topic for the Mingle will be “Research to Reality: Tips for Communicating with Gen-Z.”
Born after 1996, Gen-Z are ages 22 or younger. This generation has grown up in an “always on” technological environment. They have been immersed in social media, constant connectivity and on-demand entertainment and communication for most if not all of their lives. Their education was also greatly disrupted by the pandemic.
“This is our new workforce, and we need to be prepared to communicate and connect with a new era that has a unique set of expectations for their careers and their lives,” said Kelley Beam, Business Administration program coordinator for RichmondCC. “We have invited several Gen-Zers to join us and share their thoughts and ideas in an open discussion format. We will also provide some research on this topic that will benefit our local business owners and employers who are desperately in need of employees.”
The public is invited to join RichmondCC’s faculty, staff and students at the Morning Mingle on May 3. Light refreshments will be served.
