Cielo recently hosted a virtual roundtable in partnership with the Business Transformation Network (BTN) to discuss strategies to cope with the growing need for in-demand talent within the financial services and insurance industries. 

The impact of the pandemic has been felt by all organisations in various ways and, as businesses start to venture out the other side, planning for the future is at the forefront of their agenda. 

Competing for talent will always be high up on the agenda but with an evolving world of work, organisations and talent acquisition leaders really need to understand what skills they already have inhouse, what skills they need to obtain from the external market, who they are competing with for those in-demand skills and the culture and employer brand that will enable them to attract those skills and articulate why their business is different.  

The conversation asked many questions and uncovered the following three key takeaways: 

  1. Strategic workforce planning moves to become skills-based workforce planning
  2. The demand for digital talent is increasing
  3. Office culture is much greater than the office building you physically reside in
