Global Financial Services Virtual Series: Productivity & Upskilling

Sustainable productivity improvement is imperative for the financial services industry, but it will be challenging without a strategy and set of goals that allow for their measurement and management.

An important element of this will be upskilling (including digital upskilling), employees in order to support the growth strategies of your business. Both the challenges and the opportunities in increasing productivity share a common theme — they require an explicit focus on building up new digital skills and capabilities. 

Join our panel as we explore the 5 areas were institutions can focus their productivity efforts: 

  • Understanding your workforce

  • Re-thinking the change functions

  • Bringing an agile mindset

  • Embracing the platform economy

  • Salesforce effectiveness

Global Financial Services Virtual Series: Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG)

For some investors, financial return will remain the sole priority. However, a growing number of investors expect organisations to make environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues integral to their investment strategies. This shift is already having a revolutionary impact on performance objectives.

Has your financial services organisation embraced ESG? Join our panel as we unpack how to prioritise your activities and include ESG into your strategy as well as reporting.
