Join us for a special episode in the podcast studio to get to know Filene Fellow for the Center of Excellence for the War for Talent, Sekou Bermiss! We start with a discussion on the work he’s doing as the lead researcher for the Center. Sekou explains the complexities behind how we know that people are a business’ most critical resource, but yet, finding, hiring and retaining top talent remains a critical obstacle for most organizations. In order to truly start at the start to address this issue, Sekou decided to spend the first couple of years focused on the attraction side of the equation. He sought to discover how credit unions can better attract top talent and has put a lot of thought and research into this issue for credit unions. Throughout the conversation, Sekou educates us on why attraction of top talent is such a big challenge, what might be the benefits of employee turnover, and how organizations should, and should not, be targeting the different generations. Then, we have a chance to learn how Sekou himself got into his field of study and into the labor market through his various jobs and roles. Lastly, we get to the rapid fire questions… If you find yourself nodding your head along the way, you’ll absolutely want to mark your calendar now to join Filene and Sekou in person at our Operations and Talent research event on June 16 and 17 in Denver. See for details. Now, hang tight for a wide-ranging conversation that Sekou designates as “perfect for the nerd in all of us…”
