William Mills Agency is thrilled to see so many of our clients represented in Arizent (formerly SourceMedia) and Best Companies Group’s annual 2020 Best Places to Work in Financial Technology list. This annual survey and awards program is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in the financial technology industry. Companies recognized on this year’s list operate in and serve companies and consumers in a wide range of financial services including banking and mortgages, insurance, payments and financial advisory.
The article, featured in American Banker, states that
A common thread among 2020's companies is their ability to create a personal connection that attracts talent regardless of location — and then make sure those remote workers feel every bit as included as those working at the company's headquarters.
This can be done through simple tasks like hosting introductions among workers who would normally never cross paths, or through more challenging measures such as making sure satellite locations have the same layout and resources as the home office.
Kudos to these clients and every company recognized on the list for embracing change and facing the challenges of the modern-day workforce head on!
