Have You Read Our Newest GAMABrief, Recruiting Today for Leaders of Tomorrow?

Recruiting is more than putting up a job ad these days. To find the right person for the right job, you need to approach recruiting in a more mindful way. In today's working environment, each generation has busy lives outside their profession; their values and work-life balance needs have changed and their career expectations and desires are all unique. You need to tap into what each generation wants from the workplace.

The financial services industry is changing rapidly, and to readily meet those changes, it is essential that the workforce be well-rounded and well-represented by each generation. Different generations can complement one another and benefit both your bottom line and your workforce.

Read this newest GAMABrief, produced in partnership with our Publications' Subcommittee, to learn what each generation is looking for when you recruit them.
