Challenges Facing The Banking & Finance Industry

The global financial crisis has prompted a dramatic and permanent shift in the way banking and financial institutions do business.  At Teamworking International, we have a real understanding of the key challenges facing the industry, which is why some of the world’s leading financial institutions, including HSBC and The National Bank of Kuwait, have turned to us for training and development.

Banking & Finance

The downturn in the global economy has created a number of challenging issues for the banking and finance industry

Balancing short-term recovery with long-term objectives

This difficult balancing act is vital to ensure immediate business survival, alongside the creation of enduring and valuable relationships with key consumers, businesses and governments.

Innovative and novel solutions

Such dramatic industry-wide change requires new models of thinking to push into emerging markets, determine the most profitable relationships, have the foresight to let go of less valuable associations and make the most efficient use of limited finances.  All this has to be achieved against the backdrop of increasing government legislation.

Retaining and motivating talent

In order to survive, any banking or financial institution must develop and empower their most talented people to prosper in this new environment.  They need the skills to develop lasting relationships, cope with increased risk, manage tighter compliance demands and stay motivated through organisational change.  The challenge is to hold onto key talent through such testing times, particularly when faced with much tighter compensation policies.

Large-scale operational shake ups

The global financial crisis has been seen by many organisations as an opportunity for large scale internal change.  With a focus on operational efficiency and savings, the challenge is to push through the changes without damaging customer relationships or compromising productivity and motivation amongst your valuable workforce.
