Small Banks Have to Get More Creative to Secure IT Talent

There is an intensifying battle for IT talent in banking and small banks need to start finding creative ways to hire; “Banks need to start thinking outside the box if they want to remain competitive — or even stay in business,” said Bruce Kershner, president of Kershner & Co., an executive search firm focused on financial institutions, to American Banker; big banks have started to make adjustments and now small banks need to think along the same lines; most community banks and credit unions are looking for people with relevant experience in banking but are finding it hard to check all the boxes; they need to become more flexible and find talent with relevant experience even if not all in banking or financial services.
