Our Simplicity Talks podcast gathers insight from across the global Siegel+Gale network on the issues and trends shaping the business landscape.

We kick off the decade with a look at the world of financial services—from retail and private banking to asset and wealth management, fintech, and insurance. Specifically, we explore how the talent of tomorrow—the students and post-grads who are figuring out where they want to work—identifies the financial services sector as an employer. The perception can be that the industry is old-fashioned, bigoted, corrupt, and greedy. So why would a young and diverse audience want to work there? Do financial services firms risk being starved of the talent pool that can drive innovation for them in the future?

We carried out research across seven countries with over a thousand participants to determine what financial institutions need to be doing to be top of mind with regards to recruiting and retaining the talent that will future-proof their firms. Download our study Branding for Talent: Financial Services to explore the full findings.
