For banks, finding new employees is becoming increasingly difficult, given the competition for talent with startups and large tech companies. From how they market themselves to the selection process itself, banks are going the extra mile to find the right people.
One way is to use behavioral profiling. Some banks, including Deutsche Bank and Citi, are using Koru, a platform that is part of a pre-screening process when a job candidate applies online. Instead of looking at personality traits, it targets what it calls “impact skills,” or behavioral traits linked to actions. These include grit, ownership, curiosity, polish, teamwork, rigor and impact.
Others like Wells Fargo and JPMorgan Chase are using digital marketing and ad targeting to find candidates.
