Cultural diversity will continue to be vital in creating a robust value-focused brand as Gen Z will place a high priority on culturally dynamic workplaces. Employers will have to be mindful of technological involvement like AI and ML and algorithm biases for resume shortlisting, candidate assessment, and selection, which will define the cultural fabric of the workplace.
The competition to attract talent is rising, and this places candidates in a position where they can choose the employers. Employer branding will gain significance to attract and nurture talented individuals who are the best fit for the organization.
