In this virtual meet up, we’re focusing on employee incentivisation.

Fintech businesses need talented individuals to help them scale up and realise their full potential. However, fintechs are often in competition with traditional financial institutions for skilled employees and need to think of innovative ways to recruit and retain those employees, given that they might not have “deep pockets” to pay large salaries particularly where the business is a start-up or at an early stage of growth.

This might include offering employee share plans, flexible working or benefits designed to improve health and wellbeing, such as gym or cycle to work vouchers or mental health support. On the other side of the coin, there are a number of technology and data driven fintech businesses entering the employee incentivisation market and offering businesses new ways to incentivise staff and offer benefits.

Our panel, including representatives from Pinsent Masons, Love Your Employees, Lightbox Reward and Solutions Driven, will be discussing the ways in which fintechs can incentivise their employees, the innovative solutions that are available in the market, what the future of employee incentivisation might look like and, of course, the impact of COVID-19.

Unfortunately, we can’t offer the usual beers and pizza (although you are welcome to bring your own!) but the event promises to be interactive, informative and fun!
