Sourcing and Managing Talent: Embracing and Adapting to the Future Workforce

People are the key asset to all functions in the Financial Services Industry. How we attract and retain talent has changed dramatically with technology also changing at a rapid pace. Regulation, technology and other factors are now redefiing the skills and roles within the industry. It’s key that we need to adapt to continue to be successful.
