Millenials and Gen Z are reshaping the UK labour market, but by 2020, they will represent over 75% of this workforce and will have an entirely different set of expectations for their employer. Swarovski’s Head of Global Process Management, Jan Vogel, will share how Swarovski realised it was time to focus on the future and adapt to the needs of their tech savvy staff.
