Top graduates are no longer flocking to the City of London as banks and finance firms are losing out to trendier businesses in technology and other more fashionable industries, bosses fear.
Dame Helena Morrissey, head of personal investing at Legal and General Investment Management, said her son’s generation did not see the City as an attractive destination with financial services “the 12th choice for graduates” by industry.
At a time of high employment and a growing skills shortage, workers have an increasing choice of jobs and careers. For younger workers in particular this means they can choose companies that match their values….
And thus the rush to tech companies and their stock awards…..
And wouldn’t it be fun if the standardisation of workers equity came from that free market competition for these bright young things? Spread across the economy as a result of peeps trying to compete with tech?
