According to TheCityUK, workers in the UK Financial and Professional Services sector “contribute £83,000 annual value-add to the economy per head compared to an average of £46,000 in other sectors”. This important, major employment area needs strong leadership – in a way that is often different from other industries. Attracting, developing and retaining motivated, talented, results-oriented professionals in this highly competitive environment is part of the challenge.
Managing high performing professionals is often compared to “herding cats”: identifying the best people for recruitment and promotion, or dealing with poor performance, can be problematic.
bfpeople has worked with law firms, accountancy practices, banks and a variety of consulting businesses. Projects include the assessment of “partnership-readiness” for senior staff, leadership assessment and development for technical specialists, recruitment in many functions and coaching for performance.
