‘The Great Resignation’: A powershift from employer to employee?

Driven by the COVID-19 pandemic, the battle for talent is increasing for companies and organisations – forcing them to rethink their recruitment and retention strategies. In this session – the first of two webinars focused on ‘The Great Resignation’ – our speakers discuss how recruitment is changing within the current landscape, whether the power really is shifting from employer to employee, and what financial services businesses should be doing to ensure that they attract the best talent.

Jonas, Caroline and Thibault will cover:

  • The ‘perfect storm’ happening in the labour market
  • How the mindset of both employer and employee is changing
  • The importance of culture and values as employees become more purpose-driven
  • Best practices and how financial services employers should approach recruitment today
