City Horizons 2019 - Diversity & Talent Management

Barden Accounting & Tax is delighted to bring you “City Horizons 2019 – Diversity & Talent Management”. The latest publication bringing you the top insights into the financial services sector.

This publication is specifically designed for professionals and employers operating in the financial services sector. Developed and brought to you by our partners Barden Financial Services & Bruin Financial it highlights the current landscape of diversity within the financial services recruitment market and aims to provide hiring managers with an overview of current trends and the market intelligence to retain and attract top talent.

In the last 10 years the financial services sector has seen unprecedented change; from conduct regulation to governance, remuneration, risk management and tone from the top.

Traditionally considered the ultimate of boys’ clubs, the industry has also struggled with the image of being ‘male, pale and stale’. But with the introduction of the Women in Finance Charter, we have seen a noticeable shift in the conversation as diversity moves up the agenda to the boardroom.

The business case for diversity is well publicised, leading to greater profitability, reduced risk, and lower levels of attrition, among its many benefits. But the financial services sector is also facing a skills shortage crisis, the cost of which is estimated to be c$90 billion by 2030.

As an industry it’s an issue we cannot afford – in every sense – to ignore. To meet this challenge we need to reassess how we approach talent management at every stage. This includes how we recruit, how we promote and the cultures we build.
