How can employers attract – and retain – the best talent? ‘The Great Resignation’ Part 2

In the second instalment of our two-part webinar focused on ‘The Great Resignation’, our speakers discuss how today’s employers are competing not just with their peers, but with a mindset shift that is seeing candidates become increasingly purpose-driven. Many employees are seeking out more meaningful work, and in some cases, are leaving the workplace altogether to prioritise other areas of their lives – making the battle for attracting and retaining the best talent more challenging than ever.

Jonas, Liesje and Peter will share their insights and discuss:

  • How can employers compete with the changing values and ambitions of today’s candidates?
  • What can financial services businesses do to both attract and retain the best talent?
  • How can our industry create a more sustainable employer-employee relationship?
