How does the next generation work?

How does the Next Generation work?

Join us for a conversation on the future of work: today’s companies and employers are engaging a new generation Z. What are their dreams and wishes for a meaningful work life? How do they perceive a tech sector under massive transformation?

Join this talk about how to create healthy work culture; build tools for the next generation of digital nomads.
