Two-thirds of financial institutions (FIs) now consider talent a top concern with 40 percent of digital banking decision makers expressing employee turnover as their institution's greatest risk over the next 18 months.
With employee expectations for technology rapidly outpacing what’s available at many organizations, banks and credit unions must alleviate employee technological frustrations with a better banking experience. Is your digital banking platform a workplace challenge?
While customer user experience is key to growth, employee user experience is essential to success. Join us for a conversation led by BAI’s CMO Holly Hughes with Jacob Leick, Manager, Business Product Management at Alkami and Brian Avery, CTO at STAR Financial Bank as they discuss how digital banking plays a critical role in employee retention and business effectiveness.
- Financial institutions must partner with a digital banking provider that embeds themselves in user experience and takes a strategic approach when designing new platform processes to make sure they are optimized for automation and new ways of working.
- Automation in financial services will increase capacity and free employees to focus on higher-value projects. Digital banking automation reduces human errors and the time needed to complete manual, repetitive tasks. The result is better business outcomes and lower operational costs.
- Now more than ever, banks and credit unions need to simplify their digital banking processes and streamline their back-end user experience to make interactions easier. When financial institutions alleviate the complexity of digital banking, they can open access to front-line employees not only to help fix problems for account holders but also to be advocates and educators.
