With one month remaining in another exciting year in financial services, 2018 rolls in at a record pace. Tax reform continues its march, the bull is still roaming the streets, and advancements are coming at the speed of light. Three things front-and-center in the new year will be; employees, strong alliances, and technology (a given).
Let’s begin with the most important: employees. Our employees will continue to demand more from us than ever before. But it will not be all about the “benjamins”. Employees will crave your attention, and more of their time. They will want more education than ever before. Employees see the marketplace broadly and are realizing they must remain ahead of peer competition to remain relevant in the workplace. This will require new internal communication paths driven by firm principals, and will incorporate virtual learning.
