Flexible and family
The competitive advantage for organisations in the finance sector
Should we be surprised that many finance professionals are not working as flexibly as their counterparts in other industries?
Given that finance tends to be very process driven – think of month or year ends – professionals often need to be in the office during core hours, as there are company and regulatory deadlines to meet. So, until the finance sector experiences a big digital transformation, where processes are modernised, it will continue to be difficult for professionals to work flexibly all of the time.
While more progress needs to be achieved, finance professionals are enjoying a degree of flexible working. The big stumbling block to come out of our research is the widely held belief that flexibility is frowned upon in an industry that remains very entrenched in its working practices and what it expects from employees.
In the snapshot report, you can learn more about:

- the three key differentiators for your organisation;
