Our success at ConnectOne Bank is a direct reflection of the hard work of our team. Our people make our business and I believe that attracting top talent is just as important as retaining it. Creating an exciting workplace, fostering a culture of growth & development, allowing employees to take ownership of their work and be a part of the company’s growth story are what leadership teams need to be doing to attract and retain top talent. While financial incentives are important, investing in these intangibles will make your company even more attractive to both new and existing employees. You can hear more of my thoughts in my most recent video from my Inc. Playback Series.
