Since being dramatically affected by the global financial crisis, the financial services sector is now a fundamentally different place, shaped by strong competition and heavy regulations. Recruiting and retaining the right talent, who can handle this demanding environment is at the forefront of innovative thinking financial services organisations.
A recent study found that 52% of CEOs of financial services organisations plan to increase their headcount, but can’t find people with the right skills – and 77% of CEOs believe that this shortage of skills could impair company growth (PwC 20th CEO Study).
