“We’re not encouraging firms to try to mirror or morph into a tech startup—quite the opposite.”
San Francisco, California (PRWEB) May 17, 2016
As asset management firms struggle to combat glitzy technology companies in the battle for emerging talent, a new white paper authored by Sheffield Haworth Managing Director Paige Scott offers a clear outline for winning over millennial talent as well as keeping the peace within a diverse, multi-generational staff.
The paper, “The Future Of Work In Asset Management,” can be downloaded for free and without registration here.
A quick read at less than 10 pages, it provides insight into:
- Challenges faced by asset management firms trying to attract new talent
- The shifting values of today’s workforce, especially millennials
- 6 tactics for evolving a firm’s culture to be more inviting and inclusive
- Why monetary incentives may not always generate the best results
- How to accommodate all generations of employees
“As I make very clear in the paper, we’re not encouraging firms to try to mirror or morph into a tech startup—quite the opposite,” says Ms. Scott. “Instead, I outline concrete ways that firms can be more inclusive and diverse, which is something you won’t find at most of today’s startups.”
Ms. Scott is Head of the North American Asset Management practice at Sheffield Haworth, splitting her time between the firm’s San Francisco and New York offices. She is an active member of the Boston Club and 100 Women in Hedge Funds, and is a regular contributor of thought leadership for the European Institutional Investor Institute, the Global Fixed Income Institute and the European Institute.
