    Generation Z:  Ready or not, our industry's future depends on them and it's sooner than you might think.

    • Roughly 10,000 baby boomers will exit the workforce each day between now and the end of the next decade.
    • Social Security Administration estimates 22% of U.S. workforce will retire over next eight years.  HVACR will likely be hit harder with an estimated 115,000 new workers to be trained by2022.
    • Status quo is no longer an option.
    • Solving the looming challenge of the graying of industry employees across the board, and hiring A-list talents to replace them.
    • So who is Generation Z?
    • Welcome to the HVACR industry of tomorrow.
    • Universities provide a unique perspective.
