The Banking and Financial Services sector is a heavily-regulated, process-driven sector. Faced with the rise of fintech innovators, 88% of established financial services companies fear they are losing the war for talent in favour of more exciting and technologically-advanced players in the market.
In this breakfast event, held in partnership with eFinancialCareers, we explored opportunities for financial services employers to move away from archaic recruitment processes and adapt to the changing candidate market. Our speakers shared with us a broad range of sources to secure us a constant bank of available talent, from candidate pipelines to referral schemes and specialist events.
Employer branding also plays a vital role in attracting and retaining talent, our attendees learned. In order to compete with some of the best brands in the market, we must first understand what makes them such an attractive employer. The next step would be to shift management culture to be more creative, inclusive and employee-focused.
Stay tuned for our post-event whitepaper to find out what makes an ideal Financial Services employer and how you can become more innovative in your recruitment!
