Originally Published:


Hi everyone, I'm Anita! I've had a diverse journey in Talent Acquisition at a leading management consulting firm before joining Dell Technologies two years ago. Initially, I focused on recruiting young talents and creating a university relations strategy for our Munich Office. Since the summer of 2023, I've embraced an exciting new role as the Europe, Middle East and Africa University Relations Lead.


What makes your new role so exciting?

I am the main contact for various entry-level programs and initiatives, which I find incredibly rewarding due to daily interactions with colleagues from different countries. Interculturality is significant to me given my multicultural background and academic focus on international collaboration during my bachelor's and master's degrees in international cultural and business studies. These experiences enriched my understanding of intercultural project work.

What do you enjoy most?

At the core of my passions lie intercultural collaboration and diversity, driving my commitment to fostering inclusive environments. In today's dynamic workforce landscape, the emergence of Generation Z stands as a pivotal force for employers. Their fresh perspectives, digital fluency, and innate drive for social impact redefine organizational dynamics. What I find most enjoyable in my role is the regular exchange with my colleagues about Gen Z, our talent of tomorrow. We actively discuss and seek to understand what exactly this generation of talent expects and desires.


The ongoing discussion places a significant emphasis on Gen Z. What insights have you gathered?

One question we ask ourselves is: "Why do we categorize populations into generations?” We understand this concept within families, but from a societal standpoint, terms like Gen Z or millennials group people based on birth and shared life experiences. A significant event, such as the global pandemic, led to changes like home schooling and remote studying. Research indicates that for Gen Z, discussing mental health and wellness became even more crucial due to the pandemic.


What can employers do to address what is important to Gen Z?

Employers must adapt to the needs of Gen Z, who prioritize flexibility, purpose-driven initiatives, and authentic engagement in the workplace. Recognizing and harnessing their potential not only ensures organizational relevance but also stimulates innovation and resilience. Specifically, Gen Z emphasizes the importance of addressing mental health issues at work. Dell stands out by providing an Employee Assistance Program, offering confidential professional help and counseling to support employees facing life's challenges. This approach reflects a commitment to employee well-being and contributes to a more inclusive and supportive work environment - something that I truly appreciate!
