 It’s time to think differently and put more attention on building your internal recruiting strategies. Banks today use internal recruitment to fill roles in their business that are best suited to having an insider’s view or knowledge, as well as encourage loyalty and a sense of progress for employees. This session covers the pros and cons of internal recruiting, followed by an overview of how job shadowing can set your bank up for success.

Session 3: Succession Planning  is the act of identifying positions that are required to meet short- and long- term goals of an organization once key roles and necessary skills are identified. The succession planning process involves more than just getting things on paper, it requires training, coaching, mentorship, and assignments outside of regular job duties. It is important to remember that succession planning isn’t just about the future. It’s also about the now.
