In this new episode, Paola Bergamaschi Broyd, a senior independent non-executive director, talks to Sally Dewar, CEO of A&O Consulting, about the strategic opportunities and challenges facing banks in the near to medium term.
Paola and Sally discuss the role and value of organisational culture and governance for banks and the challenges facing boards and senior management arising from the widespread adoption of remote and hybrid working. In particular, they look at the wider impact of these changes on the development and retention of talent and the need to respond to the evolving expectations of employees and regulators.
Among the other topics discussed, Paola and Sally reflect on banks’ efforts to tackle decarbonisation and sustainability, the focus on DE&I and the effectiveness of how banks are approaching the goal of making their organisations and their boards more diverse and inclusive.
