From brand reputation issues to structural developments, the financial services sector has undergone a number of crises in the past 10 years that require a new way of thinking – and new ideas to drive talent acquisition strategy, as well.

Financial institutions need to adjust their hiring practices in order to respond to an evolving marketplace, recruiting leaders who not only are knowledgeable about banking and finance, but are innovative thinkers across other disciplines.

How can financial institutions successfully recruit and retain such talent? In this video, Heidrick & Struggles experts David Boehmer and Todd Taylor discuss the following:

• Changing recruitment strategy for financial services institutions
