Romy Riffel & Johannes Kliesch

Ok Boomer: Why it's wrong to demonize Gen Z

A change is currently taking place in the business world. Companies that until a few years ago received countless applications from graduates are losing relevance. This is THE opportunity for innovative startups and medium-sized companies to position themselves as attractive employers. In particular, Generation Z, which is now entering the job market, is setting different standards when it comes to choosing a job than the generation before it. Whereas in the past it was often about the salary, it is now concerned with issues such as work-life balance, social impact and more.

In the second episode, which the two "E-Commerce, Why Not?!" hosts Romy Riffel and Johannes Kliesch are recording together as a video podcast, it's about the changes in the job market and the challenges of the different generations. But it's also about more: how does it feel for Romy to withdraw more and more from day-to-day operations? How does Johannes feel about difficult discussions with employees? And how does a managing director find his personal Why?

The episode is rounded off with questions from Johannes' Instagram community. Have fun!
