We kick off with a fascinating and enlightening piece by John Levell about neurodiversity and how it should be informing your diversity and inclusion agenda, and driving competitive strategy.

Peru Principal Consultant, Ashley Pick shares his views on the recruitment and retention challenges facing the Retail Banking Sector – competition, diversity and Brexit to name just a few.

Finally James Radford, CEO of the Cheque and Credit Clearing Company, takes a look at the unprecedented ratio of change sweeping through the Banking Sector and what prospective employers are looking for.

At psd we continue to make good progress, reinforcing our position as leading global search and selection specialists in our chosen markets. We are very proud to have been awarded some of the most high profile and challenging positions in our specialist markets, and equally proud of our completion rates on these assignments.

We are also extremely pleased to announce that following our recent assessment for Investors in People, psd has retained its prestigious Gold Award. We were commended for “exhibiting a level of transparency rarely seen in commercial organisations … and for hiring and retaining high quality people”.

Finally, I would like to thank our many clients around the world for their continued support, and a special thank you to those of you who have contributed to this edition of psd InFocus.
