Focus on Finance Talent

Treasury and finance departments are devising strategies to attract and retain employees.

Talent is a hot topic in finance and treasury circles these days as executives fret about how to attract and retain the employees they need.

The buzz about talent reflects the changing set of skills that are required as finance and treasury seek to become more strategic, and as the economy’s recovery leads finance teams to think about hiring, even as it may encourage employees to look for other opportunities.

Value of Rotation
Bruce Lynn, a managing partner at the Financial Executives Consulting Group, argued that a rotation program that moves executives between treasury and operating units not only helps retain employees, but provides them with valuable information about the company.

“A successful treasury department is one in which people rotate in from the operating function of a company, stay in treasury for a while, and then rotate back out to another part of the company,” Lynn said.
