29% of banks eliminated or deferred any new hires
With concerns regarding economic downturn on the horizon, banks and financial services companies are working to keep costs down by delaying hiring for any new position openings. With 29% of banks and credit unions reporting they are deferring any new hires, this creates challenges for overworked staff and bankers who were laid off as a result of COVID-19. 
Banks and financial services companies worried about the current and future economic slowdown are also anticipating smaller raises for current personnel. While unemployment grows nationwide the fight for talent is still strong in the banking industry. With 44% of banks planning for smaller than normal raises in 2021, will this impact turnover next year?
